      ++ No way TLR pulls the plug on him. He will use him no matter how many guys he walks, hits or lets on base.

      I was listening to the game last night telling myself over and over, "I have a bad feeling about this...." and sure enough.

      If your fucking closer can not throw strikes consistently, then he needs to be replaced. Ron Villone has been out performing him fer crissakes.

        He'll hit the DL after his next implosion.

          He's finished, as far as I can tell. I didn't see or hear the game, but a good indicator that Izzy is hurt is when he starts relying almost exclusively on the cutter.

            Before we send Izzy back to AAA, we need to account for his being lights-out the first three weeks of the season.

                No, they don't. It only matters what he did last night.

                I would much rather have any of the other closers in the division because they did not blow saves last night.

                  The thing of it is that you don't keep players on your 25-man roster and not use them. Of course TLR will keep using Izzy, because Izzy is on the team. They'll use him until he hits the DL.

                  Check the 2006 game logs. Even as his hip was deteriorating Izzy would go through stretches where he was very effective.

                    3 Blown saves and a 7.11 ERA....

                    Did you actually watch his pitches? no movement...none...no velocity...none. Off-speed...wasnt working.

                      Izzy's monthly ERAs from 2006...

                      April: 6.00
                      May: 0.77
                      June: 5.25
                      July: 0.69
                      August: 5.06
                      September: 9.00 in three games before he finally hit the DL.

                        Actually, he was hitting 89.

                        If he continues a decline, yes, he needs to be DLed. But, 2 weeks is a rush judgment IMO.

                          Didn't he have like 10 blown saves in '06? That can't happen again. This division is going to be way too competitive to piss that many games away until they realize his hip is bad.

                            This is rational, but last night had 2006 Isringhausen written all over it. Laboring to find the strike zone and serving up a meatball when he does.

                              Yes. We decided the strike zone might need to be put on a milk carton with a "Missing" title for Izzy's breakfast table today.
