Aceves needs to have his head examined. He had a temper tantrum because the team's All Star closer returned from injury and closed a day after Aceves had one of the poorest outings of his brief career.
Aceves leads the league with blown saves with seven. Aceves ERA of 4.6 is about double that of a successful closer.
Aceves should be grateful to have been removed from the closer role. He is worth more as a jack of all trades, like he was last year. Aceves has made, so far, about $2 million dollars playing professional baseball. Derek Lowe started out as a middle reliever, then became a better closer than Aceves could ever dream of being, but then was installed as a starter when the Red Sox obtained a natural closer, Ugweth Urbina, where Lowe flourished. Lowe made about $3 million in his five years as a reliever but over $100 million as a starter. Tim Wakefield, for a decade and a half, did whatever his manager told him to do. He even became closer one year, and then a regular starter and then a long reliever/spot starter and made over $40 million being the jack of all pitching trades that he wouldn't have made as a closer. Aceves was on the short list to become a back end of the rotation starter. Now he will either be traded or non-tendered. Nice going.
