Here's a link to an mlb.com article arguing for using Takatsu as our closer:

Far out!! Not only an article about Mr. Zero, but someone besides us basically saying, "White Sox, WAKE UP!! Shingo should be closing games!"

You know tha the team will be too stubborn to make him the closer becaus eof the money the pay Billy, i really hope that this doesnt become the reason we dont make the playoffs

I agree 100% with that article. I've been a big Ozzie supporter so far but that article makes him look like a moron. If those quotes are true they're probably the stupidest things I've heard come out of his mouth since he's been manager. I guess they could probably have been taken out of context though, but I do hope that Ozzie gives Shingo a shot.

I don't think Ozzies comments were that bad or ridiculous. I think he has shown that he is just cautious, I cant really blame him after he has seen how volatile the closer situation is here. I want to see Takatsu given a shot very badly, I think he can do it. But being Guillens first year and how fickle or pen can be I can understand his hesitation to really rock the boat. I think he will end up making the move very soon though to give Shingo his shot at closing.

It just looks really stupid when you're making comments like "well I don't know if Shingo will be successful as a closer" while continuing to put in a guy you KNOW is not getting the job done.
