Sorry. I didn't realize it was your personal vendetta to beat uninformed people over the head in a thread about closers... My mistake. Carry on. :-S

He's the guy that continued the argument, I merely finished it.


And 'sigh'...

It's not like I require thanks or anything, but if this is what happens when a person provides good advice in here, I don't know why I even bothered.

Of all the consultations I've read about in the last few years, I've seen just one (and I'm sorry I can't remember who) where Andrews hasn't had to do anything. I don't think teams go to him for fun.
He really is the grim reaper of pitching.

Other than the fact they were uninformed and didn't make sense to any Jays fan in this thread, yeah, there was nothing wrong with them.


Would you shut up and start talking about closers again?

Thanks ;-D

I do apologize that you all had to see Papelbon's smug face so many times, but you can thank Aussie Dodger for that evil idea.

only 10 more hours!

Well Devine is pretty shaky health wise anyway.

Is it just me or do the A's have more chronically injured players than any other team?

Im aware of the omnipresent shroud of death..just if league to league people have no closer options sitting on the wire or no one they want to pick up why hurry is all?

I really don't drink as much milk as I should, but...here's the bottomline with me, if somebody continues to be like THAT and calls me out directly, they deserve whatever they get. If you guys disagree, that's not my problem.

Why not just take it outside of a useful thread? Maybe PM or start another thread? Why disrespect others by continuing the pissing contest within this thread?
