    Why all batters don't wear wrist and elbow protection is beyond me.

    Yeah, because when Knebel is back, MIL can use one less bum per night.

    I wish I didn't have Holland so I could deal for him. Norris is going to run away with the job? Really?!?
  4. Mar/April Closer Thread 2018

    I'm not as pessimistic on Melancon. If I recall correctly, he pitched reasonably well when he came back last year. Again, I could be wrong, but I thought the reason he didn't close was that Dyson was on a streak before Melancon decided to shut it down. I thought it was crazy of Melancon and the Giants given that they were out of the race. I guess my point is that, notwithstanding dire medical news, Melancon pitched and wasn't always awful. I think he's still worth a DL-slot in save hungry leagues. Please feel free to correct my rose-colored memories of Melancon's September. :-)

    Wholeheartedly disagree. The thread provides analysis and directed, compiled, real-time news found nowhere else.
  6. Mar/April Closer Thread 2018

    Lots of judgment for a guy who has pitched to a handful of batters. Time to make lowball offers for Holland.

    Jansen didn't look injured. He may have a bad year with diminished velocity but it does seem like save-chasing among Dodger setup men is futile.
  8. Mar/April Closer Thread 2018

    Ha, Jansen thought he was coming in but isn't
  9. Mar/April Closer Thread 2018

    Jansen time, get your velo guns ready

    Well, at least the Barnes owners got the benefit of the best friend of the top closer, strikeouts when in a jam. Oh wait ...

    it's likely albers and barnes, they'll each go alternate games throwing 2 innings at a time :-)
  12. Mar/April Closer Thread 2018

    I like Albers too. Great numbers last year even if he wasn't successful in his short turn on the Nats merry-go-round. Usage this year looks good.

    Alexander and Baez aren't making a case for NIL.

    Doubleheader means Kontos-time!
  15. Mar/April Closer Thread 2018

    Or we find out Rivero has been dealing with some mysterious injury. I'd rather grab Kontos now and drop him once Rivero puts up a good outings or two.
