No news. AZ management said last week that Mantei was their man (remember , they are trying to trade him). But at some point putting the fire out with gasoline will get old. I doubt AZ management will back track so quickly, but 1-2 more consec. dismal outings and I think Mantei and Valverde may swap roles.

Matt Mantei - R - Diamondbacks May. 3 - 9:04 am et

A day after giving Matt Mantei a vote of confidence, manager Bob Brenly said he'd speak to Mantei on the plane about being removed from the closer role.
''We'll talk about it on the flight,'' Brenly said. ''We'll get with Matty on the plane, and we'll talk about it.'' Mantei's personal feeling after surrendering his fifth homer (he allowed just six in 2003) is, '' I don't deserve to be on that field right now.'' Get ready for Jose Valverde.
