  1. August Closer Thread 2018

    guess giles doesn't want the closer role more than tepera.
  2. August Closer Thread 2018

    Tepera lit up in the 8th - if there was any possibility of him picking up a few cheap saves on his way out of the role with Giles being eased into the closer role that's over now.

    ah gotcha thx had forgotten he was still on the DL
  5. Jonathan Villar 2018 Outlook

    not in tonight's lineup. they played valera at 2b over him. anyone hear anything if he's gonna get regular PT - o's fans with any input?

    is mad max going to lose PT if the dodgers finalize the deal to acquire dozier? say it ain't so....

    so villar was eligible to come off the DL on the 25th, and i've scoured twitter and the google machine and can't find a lick of information on what is going on with him. yes, he is going to need to fight off saladino, miller and arcia for PT. yes, I need steals badly. yes, I'm in a deep league. just trying to find out if he is going to be coming back anytime soon. any brewers fans hear anything about his return?

    not saying I support the swarzak pickup but his bloated ERA/WHIP is in a SSS - only 16.2 IP so far this year. last year in 77 IP he was pretty good...2.33 ERA and 1.03 WHIP with 91 Ks (10.59 K/9).

    are people picking up swarzak? it seems like for whatever reason, calloway doesn't want to put gsellman into a traditional "closer" role. this happened when familia went down with injury earlier this year, gsellman didn't even get one save opp, even though he was their best RP at the time. he was used as a fireman. and of course, since swarzak went 2 IP today, he won't be available tomorrow if they have a save opp. good times.

    nobody up in the bullpen, swarzak may get a chance to finish it out...

    looks like he's finally cuttable.... Rangers optioned OF Delino DeShields to Triple-A Round Rock. DeShields opened the season as the Rangers' everyday center fielder and leadoff man, but he'll head to the minors with a brutal .204/.300/.270 batting line in 322 plate appearances. The 25-year-old speedster can be dropped in standard fantasy leagues, if he wasn't already. Carlos Tocci is starting in center field for Texas on Tuesday night.

    I realize he's not the Villar that won many teams' leagues a few years ago anymore and his peripherals are screaming regression, but is there a reason why Counsell refuses to play this guy? Guys like Saladino, Orf and Perez playing over Villar? They finally pulled the plug on Sogard, but he was getting PT also for awhile. Figuring out if Counsell is doing this to light a fire under Villar, or if he just can't stand him. Any Brewers fans have some insight on this one?

    After SerAnthony pitched the 7th and 8th, Garcia started the 9th for philly up 4-3. Got 2 outs but put men on 2nd and 3rd. Kapler then went to Hunter who got the final out. Hunter isn’t anything special but it’s worth noting that Neris was nowhere to be seen in a save opp.
  15. June Closer Thread 2018

    so to recap the mets - gsellman surprisingly comes out for the 7th in a tie game, gives up a walk, but otherwise clean. swarzak then comes out for the 8th in a still tied game, and gives up a leadoff bomb to judge and two additional singles to give the yankees a 1 run lead. I guess the one positive for swarzak is that he K'd 2 in his inning, but he did give up the go ahead HR. will be interesting to see what happens in the mets next save opp.
