The Rockies have turned to Rex Brothers for a save with Hawkins having pitched the last two nights, and he gives up a lead off single. Let's see how this turns out!

After watching this display I feel comfortable saying there's little chance Brothers takes Hawkins job. If something happens to Hawkins the Rox would be better off looking elsewhere. Brothers has no idea where the ball is going.

Take out Santo's two sub zero games where not only him but several other pitchers had control/gripping problems...

He as 8 innings 15k's 7h 5bb 2er

That's a 1.5 whip...while not great but a 2.25 era

I dropped him today in a league where I had 4 other closers...kinda wish I hadn't. Oh well


Take out my uncle's two balls and he's my aunt.

I'm pretty sure that's not how it works.

That said, a 1.5 whip is horrid. When you're removing bad games and STILL end up with results so high...that's Mitchell Boggs territory.
Want help in your A/C threads? Give details!!! Keeper/dynasty/redraft, ppr, league size, who is on your roster, roto/H2H, scoring system, etc.

If you took away your uncle's balls you'd still have an aunt with a penis

Please delete my post and move Jay85's post to the May thread so we can end this topic on CGOXMP's poetic verse.

Most of this has to do with if you are in a deep or shallow league. Deeper leagues with less options take more intelligence. For instance Aaron Crow and Fernando Abad are the best relief pitchers unowned.
