I'm holding De La Rosa but not playing him unless he starts getting saves thats only because cisnero is already taken.thinking of just dropping him and stashing strop instead who clears waivers soon.

serves him right for getting a save nearly every day B)

Bobby Parnell might be unavailable on Thursday.

Parnell was used heavily at the end of July and developed some minor stiffness in his neck. The Mets' closer should be back to 100 percent by this weekend.

Holding strop is now approaching the point of annoyance.

Agree. Unsure what to even do with him at this point.

Drop him. What the hell good is a mediocre set-up man on a mediocre team if you need saves?

Same boat here. Need saves badly, but if Gregg wasn't moved at the deadline, what are the chances Strop gets some work in the 9th? Seems like next to nil at this point looking forward.

lol Papelbon.

Says he doesn't sign up to play for a losing team, blows lead and loses game.

You can't make this stuff up.

Romo is gonna save this. I have Papelbon and I'm facing him so it's just going that way lately.

Are these shallow fly balls or are the Phillies just purposely not tagging up? WTF!
