B.J. Ryan's fastball has been clocked as low as 84 miles per hour this spring, and the Blue Jays' closer hasn't shown much improvement.
The dip in velocity is not thought to be injury-related and manager Cito Gaston is beginning to broach the idea of using another guy in the ninth inning. "I think (Ryan is) the type of guy, if he feels like he can't help us, he'll just say maybe use someone else," Gaston said Thursday. "He might not say it, but he understands." Jeremy Accardo might be the best bet to fill in, as he's done it in the past.
What you guys think? Accardo Or Scott Downs?
How about Carlson?
I like Accardo just because he has closed quite effectively already for most of a season. If it isn't given to Accardo or a guy like League that they want to take over long term, I'd think a committee would be the next most likely. Surely one of those lefties has a shot but I just think Accardo's experience, though somewhat minimal, gives him a decent edge. The consensus seems to be Accardo, Downs, Carlson as the guess at pecking order.
