Harper and Doolittle are on the same team.

What were we saying about Holland? He just struck out the side for the clean save at home.

Classic matchup play then, thanks for posting. We get to keep speculating lol

I appreciate the matchup play but the gm wants one closer.  If Doolittle converts, I think it's big.

Chad Bradford

 

His defect is that he throws funny. Nobody in the big leagues cares about him, because he looks funny. This guy could be not just the best pitcher in our bullpen, but one of the most effective relief pitchers in all of baseball. This guy should cost $3 million a year. We can get him for $237,000.

It would only be appropriate for the Nats season for him to blow it.

Just get one guy on please. Trout owns Doolittle.

Treinen? At that point, like CWS right now, I would just completely stay away as I would doubt any one guy would be worth owning anyway

If he wasn't injured maybe Dull.  But he is and I can't even think of who else inhabits the Oakland bullpen at this point. 

Edit: Yeah i forgot they got Treinen.  Why not.  Him as closer worked so well in Washington.

BTW apparently Billy Beane announced today according to the Red Sox announcers that as soon as they build him a new ballpark he will stop trading away his good players.  Eckersley: "Yeah, sure" while laughing.

Makes total sense to pitch Doolittle in the 9th with the lefites due up...Lefties 0/23 against Doolittle in 2017.

nobody knows, check out what people just said. It lined up that if madson handled the 8th the 9th was set for S/L/L, so it's the optimal situation for a doolittle save. So we still don't know for sure. It may be both of them.

Maybe WAS doesn't want to change the dynamic that was going on in OAK. Doolittle was next in line in OAK. And maybe they think they're comfortable wit it

Maybe. Or maybe you're a Doolittle owner trying a BIT too hard.
