A chain in which you've now had a part in perpetuating.

He already had that covered in his own post...basically calling himself out, but noting that you were the catalyst for the infinite chain (as seen below).

I'm curious to see what is happening in Atlanta. It's difficult to tell. Both Gonzales and Soriano have been absolutely lights-out recently and the Braves have had a paltry number of save opps. I agree it looks like Gonzales will be brought in during the 8th if the matchup makes sense, but I'm still interested to see how things pan out there. Sorry if I was a bit redundant.

can mods just delete useless posts, or better yet, if you have a problem with a post why not PM that person. That way the person gets the message, but the board stays cleaner.

Also, I don't think anyone has commented yet on teh rotoworld post about Nunez coming back as the closer.

Leo Nunez (ankle) hopes to be available to serve as the Marlins closer tonight.
Dan Meyer picked up a save earlier in the week with Nunez sidelined, but it sounds like Nunez is the man for saves going forward as long as Matt Lindstrom is on the DL.

Not so fast.
Rotoworld: Leo Nunez (ankle) is available for Saturday's game against the Rays, but won't be given the opportunity to close until he can show that the ankle isn't a factor.
"I'm not going to put a guy out there who we don't know how he's going to react in a game to close out a game," manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "It's hard for me to say 'You're healthy,' and then throw him out there. So if we're going to use him, we're going to use him early on in a game and back him up with Dan Meyer, or somebody else."

Translation: Nunez only earns this job through performance.

Meyer is closer for now.

Chris Perez traded to the Indians. Does he immediately become second in line for the closer job?

With Jensen Lewis struggling mightily and Betancourt, who pitched well in may, on the DL, I would think so.

Rodney has been very solid this year, and even though he's still Fernando Rodney, it's not like Zumaya has ever been able to be consistent in crunch time. He's also been having some fairly rough outings lately.

Thoughts


i dont see much reason to hang onto him...if something were to happen to Rodney i think Leyland would go with Lyon first...he's been pitching better and at least has closing experience

as a Tigers fan i hope some team falls in love with Zumaya's 100 MPH arm and trades us a corner OF or starter because they think he can close...so i guess there's a slim chance he could become relevant in that way
