Benitez struck out two and walked one. Nice to see, but he's still a sell-high candidate. Jun. 17 - 10:26 pm et
This is the second bad write up they have had on him this week! I see no reason why he cant be the top closer at seasons end. Marlins always play close and the enviroment is more fitting for him.

I agree with you. No reason Armando won't continue to be a top closer at year's end.

The honeymoon ended tonight for Armando Benitez as he allowed three runs in 1 2/3 innings against the White Sox to blow just his second save of the season.
Benitez entered in the eighth inning in a 4-0 game with two runners on base. Frank Thomas proceeded to hit a three-run home run to make it a 4-3 game. The Marlins added an insurance run in the bottom of the eighth, but Benitez then allowed a two-run home run to Timo Perez to tie the game in the top of the ninth. Tonight's game raised Benitez's ERA from 0.54 to 1.29. He's still a very good option in NL-only leagues, but he won't keep up his high saves pace or his very low ERA.

Ken Griffey Jr. has been moved up to the cleanup spot tonight.
Adam Dunn, who is still Cincinanti's best hitter even if he's not as hot as he was at the start of the year, is back batting fifth.
