Provided he's healthy of course (he had some issues earlier in ST and just started pitching in games again recently).
Yeah but Accardo was out injured and last time he was really health he was closing and doing a good job of it.
That was over 1.5 years ago. He hasn't proven himself to be the same pitcher yet.
We won't know who it will be, or even if it won't be Ryan, until the season starts most likely.
If you say so, but I think I have a pretty good read on this one. Cito used Downs several times for saves last year when BJ couldn't go (5 saves in total), and I expect him to go with his most dependable reliever just like he did last year. Pick up who you want, but I'll stick with Downs for now.
