rhodes in the 7th?

Man I wish I picked Arthur Rhodes for bust of the year in the predictions forum, despite everybody else thinking he'd be an awesome closer..............oh wait, I did :-b

Hate to say I told you so.....well not really.........but I think his time as an elite RP (all 2 seasons of it) are through. Next stop: Duchschbag. I have him in a few keepers, lets hope he closes this year and gets a rotation spot next year ;-D

okokokokok

All Praise LBKAckal, now that he reminds me I remember the long heated arguments we had and how I defended Rhodes. LB you were right, Rhodes is trash and he can not close games.

However LBJackal you may have won the Rhodes argument, but I will win the Zito is better then your Loaiza argument and that Zito is still an elite pitcher.

LBJackal is now going to reply with 200 words on why Zito is overrated and not that good.

But he is, and Zito has pitched much better then his numbers show, his K's are way up and by the end of the season Zito will once again have established himself as an elite starter and a fantasy ace. While Loaiza will prrove he is a fluke :-D :-D

So far Loaiza has been a lot better than Zito, so I'd say I have the edge there. And that was a huge longshot before the season; like picking Birdstone to win the Belmont. And Zito is doing pretty much what most people, including me, thought he would: allow too many hits, not win many games, and have bad ratios. At least he has decent K's. But Loaiza has him beat in everythign else :-D Lots of season yet to go though, and the first 3rd won't have much of a bearing at all since there isnt' a whole lot of difference between the two. Was that 200 words? :-D Cuz I can go on for a bit longer if I have to ;-D

Has he even been called up? He's been doing well in AAA, but I havn't heard much about him.

Sporting News says the A's called up Justin Lehr from AAA Sacremento (their closer). Sounds like they may as well give him a chance. As I recall Beane thinks putting the pitcher in the closer roll makes him a closer and that its unpredictable.

Sorry about the duplicate...I didn't notice the other pages until after I posted it. Should have known You guy's are faster than that. Especially you West Coasters who get 3 more hours than I do.

ya you are missing something, I watch every single A's game everyday for the last 3 years. I can tell you, I would bet money maybe even my life 8-o Jim Mecir will never be a quality or even decent closer. I dont care that his stats show he has been good over the last month, his ERA is still over 5 8-o 8-o 8-o and not to mention that the runs he gave up over the last month were in the one save opp he had.

Here in the bay area Jim Mecir has a nickname

"FEAR MECIR"

Now that should mean opposing hitters should fear mecir, but we all know what it really means, it means A's fans and A's players should all FEAR MECIR b/c when he comes into the game no lead is safe.

I have said it before, I will say it again, Rocky Biddle & a Joe Borowski with shoulder damage are still better closers or RP then good old Jim Mecir.

Guy is complete trash, Ive seen him for years now, take my advice and steer clear



Hate to say I told you so................Not really, well in this case its my A's so yes I hate to say but I Told You so.

It dosent matter how good the numbers look over the last month, Jim Mecir is worse then Biddle and Borowski, Ive watched him for too long to not know that.

Mecir = trash
