Guardado the closer

Postby futanto » Thu Jul 06, 2006 5:26 pm

Guardado was just traded to the reds, most likely to close according to a suggestive quote from the manager.

Will he take the opportunity and run with it or will he just collect runs?

We'll see now.

I have Coffey but I don't think I'll bother with Guardado. He's been pretty bad this year and the Reds are playing some pretty bad baseball lately.
Guardado could get a short term boost by switching leagues but he's still a gamble to say the least.
Of course, anyone who desperately needs saves should probably take that gamble.

There's about 3 other threads on this elsewhere but Guardado will be the Reds closer and he'll probably do well in the job.
