Ryan Franklin

So, um, just like we all expected, Ryan Franklin is a Top 3 closer so far this season.

I've seen the doomsday stats from last year (though his 2007 numbers were excellent), but he has been fantastic in the first month. 7-for-7 in save opportunities. Hasn't allowed a run. Hardly allowed any baserunners. 9:2 K/BB.

I think it's all about the giant Jeff Bagwell beard.

Seriously, though, no reason he couldn't put together a Todd Jones season. Anyone else believe?

Believe or not - enjoy the ride!

A player just finds himself some times, maybe this is Ryan's time (I sure hope so!).

I am definitely enjoying the ride so far...I think a lot of people jumped the gun far, far too quickly on Motte and Perez, forgetting all about La Russa's mancrush on Franklin.

No complaints here (with his performance thus far or the beard). ;-D

If you can find someone to buy him, you should sell him. Sure he could be the next 'insert cripple save guy' but he does not have good stuff and the odds of him staying closer all year are slim.
