    Very impressive vs sea and hou last two starts.
  2. July Closer Thread 2018

    Clippard sucks, and Oh has been great lately.

    Find a way Cleveland. Yonder can sit for awhile

    Even with the awful D i still don't think this defense first stuff lasts long. How many games of bad O will they accept before the pendulum swings back on the narrative? Runs runs games, I'm holding for awhile

    Rich Eisen show just said deal might be held up due to medicals... what's with bal and their strict physical reports anyway

    If those are my only two options, I'd lean toward the E5 comp. His swing and miss woes of late are probably pretty overblown just due to the crazy injuries he had. He's probably not winning a batting average title ever, but a true talent 260 270 isn't a crazy projection imo.

    Any Toronto fans in here? Clippard hasn't looked sharp lately, and we've got three weeks before Tough Guy Osuna is back. Closer Monkey listed Oh as next up and i agree. Seems like he's under the radar a bit

    I don't disagree with the firing, but i guess i don't see what you see reading this. I actually kinda agree, they are soft now. Show up on time kid, is that so hard/ too much to ask for? I guess I'd like to know exactly how Norris said what, but it's not like he stuffed him in a locker and gave him wedgies. Vet calls out a talented kid who is disrespecting his own work ethic, news at 11. Who cares? Get over it youngin. Now, if you want to say he deserved to get canned for baseball strategy reasons, you'll hear no argument from me. But this seems like a non story to me

    Oh has been pretty solid lately...

    That's what I'm most interested to see, provided he actually gets traded to Phi. Between fan and general baseball world pressure, possibly pressure from Britton himself, and maybe from the gm? (I'm not wired into phi front office relationships)...kap would have every excuse to go the traditional route. I wonder if he sticks to his guns or not.
  11. July Closer Thread 2018

    I just don't think kap thinks like this. He doesn't view a guy as a 9th inning guy. He sees a guy he can use in the 7th, 8th, 9th vs the meat of the order if the situation calls for it. And if he has multiple of that guy, all the merrier. Im pretty well convinced he ACTUALLY doesn't give a fart about a save. Not just coaches speak, but really makes his daily plans around the idea. If they trade for a traditional closer like britton, be interesting to see if he sticks with that plan.
  12. July Closer Thread 2018

    I disagree. Kapler likes matchup and rest based decisions in his pen. That's the long version of committee, and i think there's a chance it would stay that way even with Britton. Kapler doesn't have a huge track record for us to go by, but committee approach has been his mantra from the start. Not for sure either way, but i wouldn't discount the idea of britton just adding to the names of guys used in the 9th. As much hell as these boards give him, I'm pretty impressed with how he's handled that squad so far

    This didn't take long. Good call

    At this point, I'm pretty well convinced a forced sale is the only hope for this franchise. MLB should take its brand more seriously
