Is it still Will Smith's job in SF? The situation has seemed a bit murky to me for more than a week. My guess is it's still Smith. But I wouldn't be surprised to see Melancon get the next chance. Or even Strickland.

His 4th. Got one back on 8/29 too. Definitely part of the Kapler Committee.

So technically Hicks didn’t blow a save, but he gave up a 2 Run jack in the 9th of a tie game to lose.   Who do us save chasers think gets the next save opp for StL — CMart or Norris (or Hicks)?  And who’s best bet for saves ROS?

Wanna drop neris for him but just can’t pull the trigger yet..lol

I could do the same, so I understand.  Neris has been great since his return, but he doesn't get to ride on Kapler's Bullpen Short Bus for whatever reason.  Saves without horrible stats along with them aren't that easy to come by, so I'll probably be making the switch tomorrow, even if they hardly win any games anymore.

Peralta keeps sucking. How long can he keep closing playing like this?

Until the end of the season.  Can't make the switch to a good pitcher and tank the season at the same time.

 

Wait, my bad.  They don't have a good pitcher to switch to.  Carry on, Mr. Peralta...

Why no talk about 'Zona?    Weird situation their.   Box hasn't pitched a full inning in weeks.  Several save ops too

 

Bradley is poop...yada yada yada

If anyone wants to be ahead of the game picking up Jimmie Sherfy would be a good idea.

Box and Chafin warming for the Dbacks 9th, looks like Chafin will pitch to at least the first batter

Any additional thoughts on the Angles closer situation?  I thought Parker had a decent grasp on the job.

I admit. Ive never heard of him,but checked out his stats just now. That k/9 is unreal. Any word on what his role will be?  Thanks for the tip.
