is Saito/Broxton the Jones/Zumaya/Rodney of 2007?

just seems everytime there's a stud closer-to-be waiting in the wings people think the incumbent is going to lose his job for no reason or because of one blown save

That's because the turnover in that position is so high every year.

As long as that means next year, I'm sure Saito owners are ok with that.

Actually Saito's looking pretty good IMO and I think he'll keep the job for the entire year. However, seeing as how the Dodgers are winning by razor-thin margins, I would suggest having Broxton, in case the workload kills Saito or he gets a rest. Go Saito. Let's prove that Japanese doesn't equal failure :-B
