I've [closed] before. I did it in the past. I'm comfortable in that role.â†µ
It might well just be a simple, uncontroversial, public quote, but the president of the team looking at young players' potentials based on what those players think they want is dangerous. Again, he should care what they want, but he should also see them as what they can be.â†µ
But it's still early in Feliz's life cycle. Who knows what sort of conversations go on behind closed doors, there's no reason to assume he can't change his mind down the line, and he's not even yet 23. Not being a starter in 2011 isn't worth panic; I'd bet he'll be as valuable, if not more so, in the bullpen as he would have been as a starter this year. And if he doesn't want to close now, there's still a few years of development time left to change that.â†µ
Still. . . I really wish he wanted to be. . .
