Simon Says-Who's the Orioles Clawser?



Since these two guys have each earned their first career save in the past two Orioles games (two game winning streak baby!!!), does that mean that either of them are the closer right now? My guess is that Dave Trembley sticks with Alfredo Simon and his 97mph heater for now.

Neat Post. I vote for Simon too if he keeps up the heat. Isn't that what a closer does - throws hot strikes and challenges batters?
Shades of Perril in his better days!

I think Simon can do the job. He did seem like he has closer "stuff". He didn't seem rattled by the Izturis error or intimidated by the Likes of Jeter or A-Roid. I'd say Trembley rides him til he proves he can't do the job.

Alfie had some sick movement, too. If he can keep it down (which he did not last night) and utilize a second pitch, he can be effective.

Well said everyone, I guess we stick with Simon at least until he struggles.
