5 Possible Replacements for Mariners’ Closer Fernando Rodney

7 of 7

What Do You Think?

In conclusion, I believe if the Mariners opt to make a change at the closer spot, I believe Danny Farquhar or Yoervis Medina make the most sense right now. I also contend the Carson Smith is the closer in waiting on this ball club, but I would like him to have a few more big league innings under his belt before he steps into the pressure packed role.

The point of this article is not to bash Fernando Rodney. I like Rodney, but I just wanted to point out that Seattle is flush with reliable and talented relievers who are ready to take the reigns from the flamboyant 38-year-old. Rodney brings a fun factor to the club, but if the M’s are not winning, no one will be laughing this summer.
