Does anybody know what Tom "Flash" Grodon's carrer stats are? People keep mentioning the fact he's no longer with the Sox, but I never recall him doing anythinng signicifant for the Sox or any other team.

He had 46 saves in 1998, 17 wins as a SP In 1989 and110 saves for his career to go along with 113 wins. Not a superstar, but definitly not a bad career.

didn't he also tie the record for most consecutive saves (at that time) back when he first became a closer with boston in '98 or '99?

He was a pretty good starter for KC his 1st 5 seasons or so, then he kinda ran into the wall. Since the BoSox converted him into a closer during the middle of the '97 season, he has been borderline dominant as a reliever with Boston, the Cubs & Sox, when healthy. He was a very significant part of the Sox bullpen last year, making up for Koch's disgusting season.

He was a great starter while he was still able to throw his nasty curveball, but his favorite tool was also his downfall, as that's probably, more than anything else, caused him so many arm problems.

Along with this, by age 25, Gordon had pitched over 800 major league innings.

I don't think our pitching will be too bad this year, but it'll be hard replacing Gordon's 74 innings of 142 ERA+ and Colon's 250 innings of 116 ERA+.
