The only way K-Rod takes over is if Percival gets hurt. Seeing that you have Percival it might not be a bad idea to get K-Rod b/c Percival is a little injury-prone.

Even if Percy gets hurt, the job isn't really K-Rods. Donnelly would probably get the nod over K-Rod right. Also the Angels have Turnbow who pitched really well last year. I heard Bud Black on the radio the other night and he said they aren't comfortable with K-Rod closing ball games right now. They think in 2-3 years he will be their closer but right now they feel he has to work on a couple things.

Percival is the closer right now, end of story

However, percival has a degenerative hip condition. his condition might worsen as the season goes on. K-Rod is a closer waiting to happen. The question is when will percival become ineffective; Apr, May, June, Aug 2004????? or 2005???
