I'll be monitoring this closely. Izzy isn't that far removed from being a very solid closer- if (and I understand that is a big if) he can rebound from his injuries, he could very well be the guy in TB.
Just curious why he wouldn't pick a team like the Mariners where he might be the closer right away if healthy.
He said in the paper that he had a couple options, but wanted to come to Tampa because it gave him the best opportunity to get 7 more saves and get to 300. He also said that Percy convinced him to come and told him he would make sure he got his 7 saves and got to 300. He claims to be healthy. I haven't seen or heard about his throwing yet, but he claims to be healthy and ready. If it is true that Percy wanted him here I am doubting a little if Percy feels Percy is entirely healthy.
Well, he got some mis-information as TB has better relief arms than Sea by a large margin.
