If Mesa implodes....

As he has been known to do, and somehow loses his job sometime as the closer, who gets the saves? Acevedo was just sent down....

Why would he implode, as opposed to explode?

Mesa had over a 6 ERA last year with a WHIP around 1.8 (iirr). If he didn't lose his job through that, I don't know what would cause him to loose his job...

My guess is Acevedo was sent down so he could work regularly as a closer, and if Mesa falters Acevedo will get the call-up to take the job.

That said, if Mesa's on your roster (like he is on mine), try to trade him now! Then again, for the 2002 & 2001 seasons, he was pretty good with under a 3 ERA and >30 saves each year. Go figure.

I guess, Mesa could certainly lose the job, anyone know of any other high minors closer prospects in the Pirates farm system.

A longshot might be Mark Corey. He has struck out a batter per inning over his career, but has been hittable at times, and struggled w/ control at others. Weirder things have happened! Rocky freaking Biddle!

I wouldn't recommend him. I mean, he's going to pitch in a lot of non-save situations, being on the Pirates. And knowing him and his implosions... :-°

Implode typically gives the sense of a player screwing up big time, while explode can be seen as a positive stretch of huge stats usually for a hitter. :-?

Heh that was kind of stupid blurb, but I tried to answer a stupid question that was posted :-D

and while we're debating implode vs. explode, should the real title of the thread read: WHEN MESA IMPLODES

Not a stupid blurb at all. That is exactly right, Mesa will most likely implode not explode. ;-D

I tend to agree with Brendo, WHEN not IF...
