Joba will be more like Eckersley--B. Olney

ESPN radio affiliate in Tampa ran a Buster Olney interview discussing baseball matters. Among them Olney highlighted Rick Ankiel's great throwing ability from the outfield saving St. Louis runs vs. the Rockies. Brought up issue of Chamberlain's theatrics at not so dramatic moments, how this has not abated in spite of the attention it brings him. If this behavior continues, Olney said, Joba's style will be similar to that of Dennis Eckersley. In the course of the conversation, Olney referred to Mariano Rivera as "the greatest reliever of all time." I waited for anyone to bring up the "regular season total save stat," but neither Olney nor the host, Mel, did so.
