Leyland names Rodney Tigers Opening Day Closer

Postby darinlp54 » Wed Apr 01, 2009 2:27 pm

Here is today's article from the Detroit Free Press:


LAKELAND, Fla. — In his meeting with reporters this morning, Tigers manager Jim Leyland was asked the following question:

If the Tigers have a one-run lead in the ninth inning on Opening Day, who will close the game?

His answer: Fernando Rodney.

Still, Leyland emphasized that he has not named Rodney the full-time closer.

Looks like he will at least get the first shot, but saves will most likely still be spread around quite a bit.

This gives people the opportunity for owners to either buy low on Lyons are actually pick him up from FA after people drop him. I wouldn't want either RP too much, but Lyons is my guy of the two. There is a slight chance that Perry could be in the mix. Perry is very young, but he has heat. Probably the best stuff of the three RP.

Rodney short-term, but I'm probably gonna try and pick up Lyons of FA now that people are dropping him.

anybody that has followed Rodney knows he can look great for 3 weeks, then lose the job in the following 3 weeks. i picked up the Nationals closer off waivers, w/ Rodney avail, even though Washington is so bad.
