For whatever its worth, he was sitting 96, but he didn't throw many strikes, didn't get any whiffs and threw nothing but fastballs. 17 straight of them in fact.

 

His problem has been HRs, which PNC Park may help a lot.  He’s averaged nearly 13 K/9 I believe (not looking at his stats).

Rivero hasn't looked right all year including ST.  The command hasn't been there. 

 

Said as Rivero dynasty owner.

Especially when managers use them in non-save situations (Rivero).

Perfect non save inning from Osuna

Oh s---, back to back doubles off Chapman.  Tying run at the plate.

Lets hear some replacement names. Who would usurp Rivero in Pittsburgh?

Too early for that.

I messed up the score, thought the tying run was at 2nd.  Yankees are the evil empire again!

Curious also about Rivero next in line guy

Kontos maybe.  Still, just the first game.

Based on preseason comments & usage today it appears to be Kontos

Morrow blows it. Not particularly his fault

This is a new and very improved Hunter Strickland. He has always had the velocity, the 'stuff' and mentality to be a closer but back then he could only throw a fastball. Krukow was saying tonight he has never seen Strickland throw 4 different pitches before without one of them being a fastball. He looks confident.

I think the only people that don’t want to talk about Rivero replacements are because they have Rivero shares and feel it’s too dang early to be this screwed.

 

I fully understand it’s only 2 games into the longest season in pro sports, but dude looked terrible. It echos what he showed in the spring too. 

 

I have a bid on Kontos in for tomorrow. Would love to stack him and Strickland early on because of this thread.

Boxberger looked good after a leadoff walk.
