  1. The guy was put in some big situations too and ended up succeeding for the most part.

    Even when he didn’t have his command today, he got out of a bases loaded jam by getting Cabrera to hit a ball right at Andruw Jones.

    He’s a potential closer, he sure has the stuff to do it and so far, he looks to be mentally capable.

    I’d like nothing more than him to replace Bobby Jenks.

  2. Everybody’s been trying to do away with Jenks for years and he just keeps coming back like some kind of bad zombie movie.

  5. he didn’t make the team mostly because he was out of options. that may have been the talk early in spring training but it was fairly obvious by the end of spring training that he earned it. there certainly isn’t another reliever in the minors who was better than him.

  6. Congrats on the ridiculous hyperbole in the penultimate sentence, Dave! Yes, “how very easy it is to be a relief pitcher if you have”:
    Kyle Farnsworth’s
    Radhames Liz’s
    Joel Zumaya’s
    Seth McClung’s
    Daniel Cabrera’s
    (Or to pull a few other converted position guys, Warner Madrigal’s or Jose Arredondo’s)
    arm!

    You can say it’s *easier* if you have a great arm. But really, name a field where it isn’t easier to have more success with better underlying skills.

  8. I actually think he makes a valid point. If you think it’s “easy” to be a reliever just because you have a good arm you’re delirious. That’s simply a ridiculous comment to make. Incredibly ignorant.
