Rodney is at it again.. walking 2 batters... not in the zone..
Vintage Rodney, walked the bases loaded before getting pulled. Don't look for him to lose his job though.
this...he's something like 24/25 in protecting 9th inning leads this season (11/12 in saves i think). considering there arent any other good options in the pen (seems like Zumaya blows a hold every time he's out there) as long as he stays healthy and doesnt totally implode the job should be his...barring a trade of course
Even if they were to announce Lyons as the closer today, I'd hesitate to pick him up. He's terrible, probably the most consistently awful closer i've owned over the past couple of seasons. If anyone is looking for some insurance in case Rodney is hurt, pick up Zumaya. He may not have a great chance of picking up the SVs but if he turns things around, he could have a shot...oh, and he's 10x the pitcher that Lyons is when they're both playing up to par.
