He was fine all of last season too, so you just have to wonder if something is wrong with the guy. Or maybe age has all of a sudden caught up with him. Either way, I have had Jones benched now for the past week and he is getting close to a cut should this pattern continue. He is not only blowing saves but blowing saves with 1 IP 4 ER performances.
He hasn't led the league in saves, Papelbon has led all year
That's false now. Izzy of St. Louis has 21 saves. Pap only has 20. He only has 1 in June. Jenks is pretty close with 19.
Here's the number of saves through the beginning of June 15th.
J. Isringhausen (21, St. Louis)
J. Papelbon (20, Boston)
B. Jenks (19, Chicago White Sox)
D. Turnbow (19, Milwaukee)
T. Gordon (18, Philly)
Lidge (HOU) and Jones (DET) 17
Ray (BAL) and Ryan (TOR) 16
F-Rod (LAAA), Hoffman (SD), Street (OAK) 15
I heard Zumaya was gonna start in place of Maroth. I like Zumaya's pitches and I think he should be put into the starting rotation.
