We've seen time and time again, that this just isn't really true. Not in THAT particular role. Why? I have no idea, because you'd think that the numbers would translate to the closer situation...but for some reason, they don't.In the end, given a similar number of opportunities, most relief pitchers will get the job done.
Again, I agree. But for some reason, Dusty won't give anybody else the opportunity to attempt to close out games. Personally, I thought Masset could've handled it if given a chance. But he was pretty disappointing this year...in a closers role, it would've been even MORE disappointing I'd think.I'll take the stuff every time. It will eventually become experienced. The experienced won't regain the stuff.
Who? Who is it that you think is the in-house candidate to replace Cordero as the closer?Yes we do.
