And if Mo goes down, I think he would be the favorite to take the job.

In response to the last post, the OP said he has been electric this season. He clarified that with saying his stuff has been electric, not necessarily his stats.

Looks pretty meh to me :-/

Seriously? A sample size of 4 innings? That's statistical analysis there!

Last Friday Pujols went 0/3... was he looking pretty "meh" to you?
:-S

I'm really liking the idea of rostering Joba right now, almost solely because of the league-settings issue mentioned above, but I'm spending most of my time right now fighting with my roster spots to find room for all these "temporary closers" on the market. :p


Ummmmm......."He's been electric so far this year"
Excuse me for assuming he was referring to the small sample size of this year lol.

And for you to assume that I'd apply the same "statistical analysis" on the number one player in fantasy over the past 3 seasons to a 25year old middle relief pitcher who posted a 4.75 era and a 1.54 whip last season is just plain dumb.

Now now, no need to fight over little old me :-D

My point was: if you've been watching Joba, his stuff looks great. He's given up one run in two of his four appearances, but he hasn't exactly been hammered.

Any thoughts on Joba's long-term value? Is he going to be the heir apparent to Rivera, or is a return to the rotation likely at some point?

He had a pretty good June and July starting last season before the Yankees started doing stupid things to keep his IP count down and he fell apart. That said, I think he has more potential as a closer.

My gut feeling is that they're going to keep him in the pen from now on, and that he'll end up as the closer eventually. Of course, it's likely we'll do this whole SP/RP dance again next Spring :-/
