I can definitely see K-Rod closing next year but I need to wait for the FA signings to see who is closing where. :-?

Didn't Soriano have TJ surgery? He won't be doing much of anything in 2005.

And yeah, other than K-Rod, we'll have to wait to see who will be closing for certain teams in 2005. I think the Jays are sticking with Batista though...... we're too cheap to go and get a real closer.

Yeah Soriano will be rehabing most all of next year from TJ surgery, no closing for him.

If your team is cheap, why not just start Batista and give Frasor another chance next year??

Good possibility Mota is. Only I way I don't is if Troy Percival goes real cheap. Even if Mota is far superior, I'm sure McKeon would go with the guy with closer experience.

I said they were cheap, I didn't say they were smart :-b

I'd like to see Batista remain a SP too. We have so many young arms to turn into closers (Speier, Nakamura, Chulk, Frasor) that it seems ridiculous to remove one of our best starters from the rotation. Granted, he isn't a good starter, but outside of Lilly and Halladay, he's the guy I'd want on the mound.

Apparently not if they're going through all of this with Batista.
