But the fact that he has had a shitload of save opporunities does NOT make him an amazing pitcher. I think mlb gm's , unlike fantasy players, will probably understand that, but who knows...


Agreed....and add his $6 million salary on to the equation and he becomes very hard to move.

hmmm....i am torn now. It makes sense to me that graves would get traded....but i have never actually seen him pitch. And if he doesnt dominate, why would a contending team want him?

Graves might not be dominating, but last year we saw a lot of mediocre closers that were traded to contending teams to "bolster" bullpens. Including Armando Benitez twice!

Man, I'm dreading him getting traded, but I can't see moving him either.

Anyone and his salary can be traded. See Hampton, Mike.

Graves will be traded and will be worthless come July. Wait a month and trade him for something.
I'm back. Sorta.

Do not boo Johnny.
