Why is everyone crying Gardner for closer because of two outs? The fact that he saved this game does not mean he deserves that job over Henry Owens. If Julio loses the job, it HAS to be to Owens or Lindstrom.
Why?

I like Owens alot, but why him over Gardner?

he was awesome last year for the Mud Hens
Do you know his closer stats from last year?
5-5, 2.92era, 61.2ip, 46h, 17bb 45k, 1.02whip, 30 saves
Thank You. Looks pretty good.
That looks more than good. I wonder what will happen when Tank comes back.

Pinto will go down, thats for sure. Tank needs to work his way back up through the ranks.

Yep I'm sure getting 2 guys out is all it take to convince everyone that he is a full-time closer. :rolleyes:

THE CONSTANT GARDNER

The Front office clearly is hesitant to install a younger closer.

Even if Lindstrom & Owens have more classic closer stuff, they're young and haven't seen the innings and situations that an older guy like Gardner has.

It's like Wickman closing over Gonzalez and Soriano in Atlanta.

Guts and moxie win out over MPH

Hey what's Julio ERA now?
16.88
Oh I thought it was higher. :confused
Gardner saved Julio's ass by bailing him out with the bases loaded

He got an out while no run scored so his ERA went down unfortunately

Gardner would easily be figured out. Owens has the better stuff, at least right now.

If Julio would have been left to his own device his ERA would be around 30.00 about now

I have julio as a late round pick up for some saves in my fantasy league...should i drop him now and if so owens or gardner, who gets the saves instead of julio?
Drop him now...as fast as you can. You are not getting any saves from him anytime soon...if ever!

I think Pinto may be out of options

I really hope that isn't the case. Pinto needs a lot of work with his control...but man, if he got that down, he's got some filthy closer-type stuff.

this is the pitcher Pinto has always been

it's not like this is a sudden turn of events that he is either deadly accurate with his control or possibly deadly with his control
