  1. It seems like more are which I don't really understand. If you look at all the teams that made the playoffs last year all had a closer. Morrow was injured so he couldn't pitch and Knebel won his job back. I don't get putting in your best guy in the 6-7 inning, they can get those guys out maybe, but then you put in a lesser guy in the 9th which are usually the hardest outs to get because of the pressure. if you fall behind in the 6-7 using a lesser pitcher you can still come back and win the game. If you have a lesser guy in the 9th because you used your best guy in the 6th and he blows it you haveno chance to come back. Genuine closers have the mentality to get guys out in the 9th, a lot of guys don't have that ability, you either have it or you don't
  2. Just one of the many reasons
  3. He won't play for the Jays this year, has still yet to play in AAA, this is a management team that coddles their prospects
  4. I disagree they were in the playoff hunt all year and got in, how long were they supposed to have a hole in the line up to let a kid find his way? They should have just sent him down, that I agree with you on and let him figure it out there not in the bigs with a playoff team.
  5. If he was playing bad, yes it would matter because his MLB numbers haven't been good, it bodes well for him at this point but is mostly facing minor league pitchers. I want to see it from him against major league pitching, his track record is not very good at all
  6. I wouldn't count on him having that productive a season, he has to run at some point and that's when he will get hurt like he did the last 2 years, he has a very strange gait, they won't get rid of Camargo or Swanson, I even think Camargo ends up playing more than JD this year because of injury
  7. Barnes got shelled today, 4 hits 3 runs 1k in 1IP
  8. I take stats in the Cactus league with a grain of salt, It's almost like hitting in Coors or where the Dbacks play except WITHOUT the humidor and every spring training game they play in some band box in the Cactus league, no road games
  9. Softest athletes in the world, this league is a joke, I've never seen guys sit out so many games in any other sport, hell even in the NFL and NHL where the sport is much more physical guys play games even if their team is out of the playoffs, they even play the meaningless games. In the NBA as salaries go up, playing time goes down, it's laughable.
  10. He's pitching really well 3 Ip 3 hits and 6 k's today
  11. Me too, I hope they don't resign Kimbrel
  12. If it's the lat, forget this year that injury did in Thor and Reyes
  13. Is Melancon out as the Giants closer? Is the job Smith's to lose?
