If BJ pitches well the next couple of weeks he'll be back closing games, no matter how Downs is pitchin' IMO.
Well then you must have a very low baseball IQ.
If Downs goes 7/7 gives up 0-1 ERs, you really believe they would remove him for the role? Right, keep holding our hope BJ owner.
My god, does everyone have to be a BJ Ryan/Scott Downs owner to give their opinion on the situation?
-It's obvious Downs has been great.
-It's obvious that BJ has been putrid.
-It's been said by management (take that for what it's worth with the Blue Jays) that IF
Ryan pitches well, he will get another shot.
So before you tell me to stop holding out hope for a player I've never owned in 10 years of fantasy baseball, you can put me in the camp who feels Downs is great, BJ is doo doo, but that if he shows he can regain his form by some miracle, then he will be in line for Saves. Period.
It's not like Downs isn't useful in the 7th and 8th innings. So don't kid yourself in thinking he'll never be used there again.
