No closers were traded yesterday so there goes the stashes.

Giles, Fields, Quack, Tazawa all stayed on the same team. I wonder what is next on the closer front.

It looks like we will have to wait for a change or an injury. Maybe the wavier trade deadline. I thought there would be more movement yesterday.

When is the deadline for waiver trade?

Edited by young dude, 01 August 2014 - 08:31 AM.

I HIR 100% with good quality. I missed 2 HIRs but that was among the first ~100 HIRs I gave. Pretty sure I'm 100% honest since :)

If you say WHIR, I hope you honor it. I'll still help you in the future even if you don't HIR, but credit is a wonderful thing :) Although I estimate reciprocated HIR rate to me is ~50% (trending up!), I expect it to rise further as we build a more helpful community here.

I wish Cody Allen would have went somewhere. He's getting zero save opportunities lately. It's like Soria all over again.

Ususally by this point in the season a lot of closer situations have stabilized. I'd expect some change, but not a ton necessarily.

Giles is still worth the roster spot in a lot of leagues... Paps would clear waivers, and a team like DET, if their pen doesn't stabilize, could come calling.

Only way i see Papelbon dealt is if a playoff team has their closer get hurt.

I'm the only one but I expect Paps to get claimed by the Dodgers...or maybe even the Giants. They can absorb his salary with no issues at all. I'm holding Giles until Paps goes through waivers.

Lindstrom stashers praying Petricka is finally going to be wild

so far 2 infield hits, he definitely hasn't looked bad yet.. but hopefully if he blows it, that's all Ventura will remember.

I believe so and have been very vocal on that count, but it would not have been a slam dunk if Petricka had continued dominating

Disagree. And I say that having stashed Lindstrom in a couple of leagues. Petricka is going to have to lose the job first, IMO.
