I wouldn't drop him if you don't have to. He is unlikely going to be the full time closer, but Bailey could mess things up for himself. Also, the plan might be to get Zeigler some saves. If you desperately need the roster spot, dump him I guess. If you can hold out a little while, then hold out.


I agree. Bailey did blow some games, and give up 4 or 6 earned runs in his last few appearances.


well, you and the crippler can stay as ignorant as you want. but i would prefer to wait until someone officially loses his job before i dump him for some speculative free agent.

about 99% of the pitchers in this league haven't blown any saves and haven't given up 4 or 6 earned runs in their last few appearances. so the fact that player X is part of the 99% of pitchers who haven't, doesn't really prove anything.

I just heard on MLBnetwork they were talkin to Price about becoming the Rays closer. Is this a possibility? That would keep his value up when Kazmir returns yes?

I'd say slim to none. He will keep his value up since the Rays didn't bring him up to only pitch while Kaz is out. They brought him up to stay for good.

He's got much more value as a starter, so thats not going to happen.

I think starts like that will keep his value up when Kazmir returns.

As a Nunez owner I am psyched to hear the manager endorse the struggling closer. Lindstrom will be on a short leash

And how much longer will the Angels hang with Fuentes? :-°


Morrow was a 1st round pick destined to be a fixture in the starting rotation this year (at least this is how i believe the Mariners saw him) before he pulled himself and put himself in the closer role. Now I know lots of players never reach their potential but i think its Seattles best interest to make him the closer or else its a total bust.

What I'm wondering is what happened to him? He was solid last year and this year before the DL Stint. Is he still hurt or is something different about his delivery? Any insight?

J.Soria Update
From Kansascity.com
All signs now point to All-Star closer Joakim Soria reclaiming his job when the Royals embark this week on a three-city trip to Tampa Bay, Toronto and Cleveland.

Soria is scheduled to undergo a day-after examination today on his right rotator cuff after acing a 23-pitch rehab outing Saturday in Surprise, Ariz. Plans called for him to return late Saturday to Kansas City.

“We’re not going to know anything until he gets back here and we see how he recovers (today) from what he did (Saturday),” manager Trey Hillman cautioned.

Even so, Hillman couldn’t disguise his optimism.

“He commanded and controlled the ball with no pain,” Hillman said. “He got seven outs (in an extended inning). His velocity was 88 to 91 (mph). He pitched at 89-90. He was good.”

Soria was 1-0 with a 2.08 ERA and seven saves in eight appearances before a strained rotator cuff forced him to the disabled list after a May 7 appearance against the Seattle Mariners.

Like you said, none. The MLB network and ESPN can all keep asking the question because he closed during the playoffs and we still need one, but its not going to happen. Price has way too much value in the rotation.
