  1. September Closer Thread 2018

    Gotta be honest, if I had to bet right now, I would go with door number 3: Hirano. Pitched for the Orix Buffaloes of Japan's Nippon Professional Baseball League and had 156 saves with a career 2.30 ERA. If I am Lovullo, some past experience and his excellent numbers on the year might make him the guy.

    Hirano's numbers look good and I know that he closed some in Japan... but are you hearing anything about him taking over? Most of what I see leans towards Zeigler or even Diekman. I think you may be right, just wondering if you have found some info I haven't?
  3. September Closer Thread 2018

    I think it is mix and match based on who is available on any given night between him and Robertson. Neither inspires a great deal of confidence right now imo as both have been just OK lately. Betances loaded the bases before getting out of it tonight. Robertson hasn't given up in run in August or September with 23 ks in 14.2 innings. Your confidence aside, and how the Yankees decide to use them, Robertson has been anything but just "OK" since the All-Star break. That being said, since the calendar has flipped to September, Bentances has gotten all the saves and been deployed in situations usually reserved for closer. As of their most recent post, Closermonkey still has as a committee, but has flipped Betances back to the "lead" in the pen for saves.
