i disagree cg. bj is well past the best before date now. ever since his tommy john surgery he's lost 7-8 mph from his fastball, and for a power pitcher that's the end. he just doesn't have anything anymore, and he's getting shelled every time he comes in. imo, he's done.

I don't know, he's looked fine actually this year. He's pitched well, has located his pitches. He looked worst last year compared to this year.

And I think he's been hitting 88-90 so far this year, so it's not a huge velocity thing. Watching him today though, he struggled locating against Cabrera and there were a few pitches that I think should've been called strikes. He never was a power pitcher like Brandon League, he threw a hard slider more than a hard fastball really and that's what I think he's struggling with.

I just hope Cito takes him out of the closers role.

Accardo should come up from AAA, Frasor should assume the closer role and BJ should sort his stuff out in the minors

Cito already said he's gonna run BJ out there again. But yeah they should bring up Accardo and send BJ to the minors. Downs or League as the closer wouldn't bug me

Wasn't Frasor the closer for the Jays a few years ago? If BJ keeps fcking up, give Frasor his job back

I wouldn't mind seeing Downs and Accardo split the closing duties 75/25. I've never really cared much for League's game.

I'm not a fan of multiple closers but that's just me. League has closers stuff because he can throw around 100mph, he just needs to command the ball a whole lot better. If BJ continues to struggle then Downs would be the safe bet to take over the closers role.

Brandon league has amazing stuff. But no command of the strike zone at all. It's ashame.

bottom of the 8th's gonna begin...Snyder with a bomb, his 2nd homerun of the game, put the jays up 8-6 in the top of the 8th...scott downs is coming up...LETS GO JAYS!!!

EDIT: Holy shit, the first batter gets a double, then a bad pitch so he gets to 3rd, no out and it isn't looking too good...but then downs strikes out the next 3...greatness

I caught lots of the game yesterday - including Rolen's game tie-ing hit and Snyder's upper deck monster. It was a very nice come from behind victory.... although looks like we're going to be down a starting pitcher already. Jesse Litch (sp?) left with a sore arm. I have no idea who is in line to jump into the rotation.

is he on the DL? for how long?
The Jays might just use someone from the pen to start for a couple games
but if its for a long period of time I think they bring up Accardo then someone like Downs takes over
or they bring up Brett Cecil

They could sign Ben Sheets, but they'll have to give up a draft pick
