July at least, but who knows how well he will recover.

its irrelevant because he will have setbacks and re-injuries, but the time table is late june, early july. I like the hatred for Riske because it means he is very underrated. He can throw flame and is a good bet for 25 saves this year. Name 6 other closers in the AL that can legitmately say that. I know the obvious ones.

Good question.

Hes out 4 months acording to Yahoo.

Im curious why some people think Urbina is overrated? I dont see too many people rating him a top 10 closer, so where is he being overrated?
Has he been a solid closer in the past? yes.
Does he have good %s? average
Does W-L records have a large impact on Save opps? no.
Is he injured? no.
Does he have competition for his job? no.

Money aside - who would you rather have closing for your club? Its an easy answer.

ahh a tiger fan making a good point, as rare as well... a tiger team getting a win in 2003. But actually its true Uggie is one of those guys that gets dumped on for no reason. I like him bery bery much.

Ahh...
If you are refering to the Spanish word for "balls" it is "cajones". The "a" would make it feminine, wich I don't see how a guys "large brass balls" can be. Unless you are a woman with balls maybe. And then again, I don't see what that has to do with David Riske.
