Lots of comments on the situation if you look at the last few pages of this thread.
Basically there are 2 viewpoints:
1. It is Downs job for now, but IFF Ryan proves to be near his old self, he'll be given his job back. Some of that has to do with his salary, but mostly it is just the theory that "star" players get their jobs back when they are ready for the job back. People in this camp, don't necessarily believe that Ryan will end up proving himself up for the job though, so it is still probably 50/50 at best if you believe what this group believes.
2. The only way Downs losses his job is if he stinks it up. He probably has a shorter leash than say, Rivera or Nathan or whoever, but he is now the closer, and he is going to have blow at least a few saves before he loses HIS job.
(I am in group 1 - if Ryan can close effectively, he will get a chance to do so)
