July Closer Thread 2017

Recommended Posts

apparently David Robertson is close to going to Boston (with Frazier).

 

I was thinking Kahnle was next, but he has not been as good lately as we was earlier in the season.

Rumor is that the Dodgers are after Rivero. 

 

I could see Rivero and McCutchen to the Dodgers for prospects.

MUCH better? better yes, but I wouldn't say much better. he is still giving up too many base runners.

For all of your whining during that stretch about how otherworldly bad he was, I figured you'd agree with me. He was terrible during that SSS, a 1.13 WHIP is not "too many baserunners" no matter how you try to rationalize it.

any closer that is giving up more base runners than IP is risky. a quality closer should not be putting that many runners on base.

This is a ridiculous post. 28 guys have 10+ saves this year. 7 have a sub-1.00 WHIP.

 

Are you suggesting that there are only 7 quality closers in the majors? Your posts about Colome were nonsensical a few weeks ago and they're even worse now. Bow out.

Isn't Swarzak a trade candidate as well? Dare I ask who is next in line after him? Whatever happened to Putnam?

not sure how I feel about Robertson going to the Yankees but he might get more Hlds/sv as the Yankees 7th inning guy than he would closing for the Sox the rest of the season

Not so fast on Swarzak. Sounds like Clippard coming back in deal. Has "closer experience." 

 

lol...IF clippard is the only thing standing between swarzak and the closer gig, it will only be a matter of time before the gig is his

So Kahnle and Robertson appear to be gone. I have no idea who is the closer for the white sox logic says swarzak. but its really anyone's guess at this point/

He came in in the 7th to face turner with somebody on. Started the 8th and gave up 2 hits and got pulled

he has been very solid this year, low era and whip - the couple of hits he gave up tonight has zero effect on whether or not he will be the closer or not from here on out.
