There are alot of left handed options so I think Grabow or Burnett, but when it comes to righties i think Chavez would be the pick. We are very weak on right handed arms right now, and might want to put a lefty as a closer.

They should have a new promotion where the winning seat number gets to close if they dont want to the rights of closing go to cheese chester.


None of the options in this poll would be liable closers in any way. MAYBE somebody floating in the minors.

I think Wilton and his two little pilin on buddies should take turns as the closer.
That way, when they get shelled, they can blame it on Dave Littlefield, Cam Bonifay,
Global Warming, The Dominican, Bad drafting luck, Jim Tracy, and everybody else under the sun other than the team owner.

Because every sane person knows that the product that is put out by a company has absolutely nothing to do with the company's ownership.

It's simply not their fault. :lol:

Sane people don't go on message boards and repeat a mantra an nauseum. Your behavior demonstrates that you cannot count yourself as a sane person.

Well Chavez was winning 7 to 3 over Grabow coming into tonights game. I wonder if that changed. Also i hope the vote for Donnie Veal was a joke.

For some reason, this post really put me over the edge. Rod took a post that asked a simple question that had nothing to do with ownership and turned it into an ad hominem attack on ownership and other board members. Now, I'm not one to say that you can't take threads off topic; I dare say I've done so myself once or twice. But, if you look at the threads over the last couple of days, Rod has been steering almost all of them to this one issue. We can no longer discuss game strategy, individual player performances, minor league development or potential trade scenarios without Rod busting in and turning into a referendum on ownership. And doing so with the same simple-minded arguments over and over again.

The rest of you can do what you want but I will no longer feed the beast. I have added him to my foes list and I encourage all of you to do likewise. If we all ignore him, he will go away.
