I really cant believe that there are this many stupid baseball people in here.
For the last time....nobdoy here has YET to say Downs doesn't deserve to remain the closer.
Pay close attention...no one thinks BJ is better....or that Downs doesn't have every bit of skill neccessary to be a very very good closer.
But if you think, and it sounds like you do, that no matter what BJ isn't getting his job back, then you are greatly confused. I don't think it happens either due to various factors, but it is a distinct possibility. I have zero at stake here as I do not own either player in any league.
You're also confused if you really believe what you stated about contracts never dictating roles. There's nothing more that really needs to be said. Either you're just saying it because it sounds good for your argument....or you really believe it, in which case you're out of touch with reality. I'm not saying I'm in favor of it...but it does happen.
