Just to make the closer situations even more screwed up...

Postby TheYanks04 » Mon May 23, 2005 11:14 pm

We have this from the Fish:

Marlins manager Jack McKeon indicated today that Guillermo Mota and Todd Jones could split save opportunities after Mota comes off the DL this week.
''One works a couple of days in a row and the next guy can take it,'' McKeon said. ''That way, if one guy goes down, we still have somebody to close.'' McKeon also talked about a committee at the start of the spring, but nothing materialized then. It's probably going to be Mota's job on a nearly full-time basis. However, it's expected that he will be used in a non-save situation once or twice after being activated.

It'll be Mota's job, I'm sure.
I'm back. Sorta.

Trans...I'm not so sure. Jones has been absolutely outstanding in the interim, and there are many who believe Mota's best role is in the eighth inning.

What's that sound in the distance? Is it Cornbread sprinting to his computer to start the I told you so express?

My lord...we have RBBC's in fantasy football that kill player's value, and now we're going to have a trend in CLBC in fantasy baseball. Yuck! :,-( :-P

I've got them both, so if it's true it'll only cost me a roster spot I could be using for something else ... :-[

It's like Todd Jones pulled Rod Beck aside and asked him for a few pointers...

What happened to Beck? He saved my fantasy team a couple years ago...
Yes, I was, uh... I was thinking about ordering the tape, the videotape... about the college girls and the... the wild... the wildness. They're going wild or something? Somebody told me... about going wild.

Drinking problems, plus Hoffman returned. Don't know where he went after that.
