Despite demotion, don't give up on Rondon
Believe it or not, and after his demotion to Triple-A Toledo late Wednesday it might be a bit hard to believe, but I still think young Detroit Tigers fireballer Bruce Rondon can lead the Tigers in saves. Rondon throws hard but tends to not know where it's headed. He's certainly not alone there, but the Tigers are primed for another World Series run and manager Jim Leyland is aware that a committee approach rarely works. He wants someone to handle the role, not a bunch of someones, and Rondon remains very much in the team's future, even if it initially will be as a Mud Hen.
