Trivino put him in a tough spot in the 8th, with runners on 1st and 3rd, one out.  9th inning Blake started losing control and walked in the game winner in 4 pitches against Tuve.

Guess not. I need a refresher on the saves rule when the closer comes in mid inning..

Saves rule should just be permanently pinned to the top of each monthly thread

Also im pretty sure Seranthony wasn’t available. Not saying it’s not Neris but not completely clear cut yet. He’s definitely ahead of Robertson for now though. 

 

Has Robertson been used in any SV situations yet this season?

Maybe he’s pulling a Hader?

Tying run (at best) has to be on deck for it to be considered a save situation.

For instance, if you are up by 5 runs with two outs in the bottom of the 9th and the bases are loaded, it is a save situation.

Should we be picking up Brasier?

Depends on needs and league depth but if this usage continues then yes.   I own him and Barnes owner keeps knocking for trades.

Brasier is up in the pen. Looks to be ready to come in for the 9th.

Brasier gets it done. K'd Dyson, made Escobar pop out, allowed a double to David "Doubles Machine" Peralta, and then Adam Jones grounded out

Neris looked nasty finishing off the Twins in the ninth.  He made Nelson Cruz look pretty bad swinging at a third strike for the last out.

Treinen got squeezed badly and one of those walks were intentional, but he didn't look sharp and he hasn't all year.

Brasier?  Someone saying Brasier closed another game?  Who knew?  😎

And yeah Barnes for the second time now played the "Hader Role."

I'd think it would have to be Trivino. Perhaps Soria, but I'd be surprised.
