  1. Might be interested if the auction date/time works. When is it?
  2. Doubt the knee is the real issue. Sounds like an excuse to give him a needed break. Betting he is right back in the ninth after 10 days.
  3. Just a guess, but I think right now they consider Lugo their most effective reliever and aren't concerned about roles, just winning games, so they will pitch him whenever he is needed most in the late innings and not lock him into closer or set-up guy.
  4. Doolittle has been worked into the ground by Nats, Hader says, hold my beer....
  5. Today it appears to be Matt Magill (scoreless ninth for the save in a one-run game). Tuivailala clearly has the best numbers. My guess is there probably won't be a clear cut guy the rest of the way and they'll go matchups/committee, unless the decide to ride with a guy like Austin Adams when he comes back.
  6. Dialing back the juice factor on the ball would certainly help Hader since nearly all of his runs come on the long ball, but so would not asking him to get 4-6 outs several times a week. It would really help Hader if they had someone else reliable to share the burden but their other late-inning options like Jefferies, Peralta, Burnes and Knebel have all been ineffective or hurt. They don't trust anyone else and they need every win so they keep running him out for multiple innings and have run him into the ground.
  7. Within a matter of minutes, Cashner locks it down and Hader gives it up. The closer game is not for the faint of heart this year...
  8. Walking Lindor would have put the winning run on base with one out and almost guaranteed that Santana was going to get to the plate, who is white hot at the moment
  9. Eovaldi coming in with one out in the eighth of a 6-5 game. Unbelievable. I guess it doesn't preclude him from still opening tomorrow, but they certainly won't get any length out of him if that is this case. This soap opera just doesn't seem to want to end. UDPATE: Only took him six pitches escape....
  10. It looks like Eovaldi is going to used as an opener tomorrow, and I would think this is Stage 1 of stretching him back out as a starter with Casher demoted and Price on the IL. That would mean that the Eovaldi closer hype train, barreling along not that long ago (with me unfortunately aboard) has now officially derailed, much like the Red Sox season,
  11. This was useful info. I speculated on Lorenzen and he gave up two runs as a set-up guy without recording an out. Kind of typical of my year. When you play the Game of Saves, you win or you die,
  12. The Brewers are burning Hader to a crisp.
