Manager Ron Washington said Sunday morning that Neftali Feliz would replace struggling Frank Francisco as the Rangers' closer for the time being. The intent, Washington said, is for Francisco to fix whatever flaw has limited his velocity and ruined his location.
"We need to give him some time to get things together," Washington said. "There is no way we can get through this year and do what we want to do without Frankie Francisco. Frankie will be the closer for the Texas Rangers."
If it wasn't for Francisco blowing it twice, we would be 4-1 right now.
I can't believe they didn't do it sooner. Batters are scared of him, his fast ball is within 1-2 mph of the nastiest thing ever thrown in an MLB game and he can bring it every day. Get Franciscos head back in the game and trade him.
