"We're going to have to have a discussion," Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said, regarding the closer's role.

This is astounding. Just last night, Brad Ausmus stated that his confidence was “Good” in Francisco Rodriguez, and that “no” he was not thinking of making a change at closer.
Well that has changed today. K-Rod did his thing again today out at the Oakland Coliseum. He’s honestly blowing up worse than Jose Valverde did when Valverde made that triumphant return several years ago.
Since they might have a discussion now, and only now; it will be interesting to see where things go from here. I’m guessing Justin Wilson gets first dibs and K-Rod is soon to be never heard from again.
