rhodes in the 7th?

I understand your thinking, but you have to think they have someone in mind already with putting him in, in the 7th in a one run game. I wonder who though?

same here.. but i really think the A's would rather have Harden in the rotation unless they got their plans of bringing up Blanton soon 8-o
[size=10]Manny Ramirez....$20 million
Pedro Martinez....$17.5 million
Curt Schilling...$12 million (and a $2 million bonus)
Never hearing a Yankee fan chant 1918 again...priceless. [/size]

No if one thing is for sure, Harden will not be removed from the rotation to close games. The A's will trade for a closer before they move Harden to the pen. Billy Beanne laughs every time these rumors come up and he says he has no idea where these rumors come from.


Rich Harden is not going to close for the A's at all this season and he will not move to the pen, I can guarentee that it will not happen even if the A's have no other alternatives, Beanne has killed these rumors day in and day out, but they still come around.

I hope you're right, because I'm not a Harden owner ;-) Either way, the A's need to do something NOW if they want any chance at the playoffs. Rhodes should stick to being a situational bullpen man. If Duch. had been pitching better lately, there would be no doubt in my mind he would be named closer, but with his struggles, it really is up in the air.

I think the A's will most liely give the Duke the next oppertunity, and ultimetly will end up trading for a closer. Who they will trade for I dont know.

Rhodes didn't come into close the game, nor did he lose the game.

so at least he doesn't get the loss

NO I would bet my life that Jim Mecir will never ever be even a decent closer in the Majors.

He is the worst relief pitcher the A's have, the guy is a piece of trash, im sorry to be so harsh but ive seen this guy blow so many leads over the past years that my anger builds up.

Jim Mecir........should he ever close a game for your team I suggest you run and hide.

Gotta agree here, I've never seen him pitch, but based on stats, that guy sucks!

I will give Mecir a little credit, everytime he steps onto the mound it is a medical miracle. The man has 2 left feet. Yes, he has 2 left feet.

But he still incredibly sucks, 2 left footed piece of trash. :-D
