Except tomorrow might not be a save opp so he will get rest then.  Jesus these managers have no common sense.  You use your closer in a save opp as long as he's good to go.

"get rest" is usually code for "he's not at 100% at the moment" for whatever reason 

 

or the guy is being secretly disciplined for some infraction

 

or for any other reason the manager doesn't want to the public to know

 

don't take almost anything they say at face value ... it's infamously called "coach speak" for a reason

Yep, that was my immediate thought as well. That's a major red flag to me.

Damn Hand has been a killer for Yates owners lately. They can’t keep this up or they will burn him out. I wonder why they are pushing so hard: it’s not like they don’t have good arms in their pen

I know it’s most likely notttt happening but it would be so so sweet if they would just let Yatesy take the 9th today!

Or maybe... it will happen after all! 

 

Strange move, I guess it was lefty /righty matchups?

Chaz Roe nails down a save?

So what's the read on the TB situation then? Is it likely to be Roe going forward? Such a strange pen.

I think it’s because they wanted Hand to face the heart of the order (3-4-5) and hope Yates can cleanup the garbage

Is there anyway to know what’s going on with them? Roe is as likely to start a game as he is to close it out next. Kidding but not THAT kidding!

Hicks finally getting his command under control? Maybe he's must-add now

He is. He’s incorporated a slider to go along with his disgusting sinker and now he’s getting strikeouts.

 

He’s must own imo.

So is it okay to ask which you guys would prefer as the better pickup...Gsellman or Roe? Or is that forbidden in the Closer Threads?

Personally, I'd go Gsellman.  A few reasons...

1) he's been pitching better, I think, of late

2) I prefer his relatively clear opportunity over Roe's completely indecipherable one

3) Gsellman is the best pitcher of Mets options---Roe isn't (Alvarado is, imo)

4) As between Familia's health/trade vs Tampa committing to one guy I think it's a push, or the first is a better bet

Some good points there. As no1, Roe has been pitching better than Gsellman over the last month...especially over the last two weeks. It could also be argued that Swarzak is a better option than Gsellman. I'm not saying he is or isn't, but he was really good last year.
