Aardsma just blew a save. Is Lowe next line in Seattle? How safe is Aardsma in the closer spot?

That was only his second blown save, so he's probably pretty safe for now. He was pretty bad though. 4er no outs. Mark Lowe has been the primary man.

3 of the 4 batters Gonzalez faced today were righties. Seems the worst is here for Gonzalez owners :-{

oh ok so it isn't even matchups. and soriano has been pretty good as of late so i'm not surprised.

i have gonzo on 2 teams. luckily, i thought this would happen and also handcuffed with soriano on both teams. :-D

Does anyone think Lindstroms trip to the DL will oust him out of the role kind of like Morrow or Ziegler?

I"m going to be the weakling here and say it dpends. This certainly isn't anything like a Lidge situations, where he was going to get the role back immediately after coming back fom the DL. But if the Marlins keep having to switch closers around, or if Nunez/Meyer split the role for the next month or so, then I'd say Lindstrom gets his job back.. They've also signed Ayala and Donnelly, so I'd say that almost anybody on the club right now could end up being the Marlins closer in September, including Lindstrom...

kiko calero is off the DL, do people still think he'll be in the mix for saves?

Not until/if a few are blown in the meantime. If there are a few blown saves in a row, I bet he gets a shot. Kinda like the Ryan Franklin situation, though the chances of it working out the same are probably about 1% :)
