I think he’s gone from morbidly obese to just plain fat 

 

Is that just the aging process of the male Albers in his natural habitat?

Gee maybe there's a reason no one wanted to sign Holland..

Guess $14MM doesn’t buy you much these days.

 

Boras wins again.

I'd give Holland a pass since he's way behind in preparation for the season. Still the guy to own, and it'll take a lot to overtake him.

Yeah, he’s got 14MM reasons to be the closer, but nobody’s leash is infinite. He looked terrible. 

 

Nobody can dispute that.

Jordan Hicks for closer!

I think there is a really good chance that Hicks is way overrated.  Throws 102 mph but doesn't seem to miss bats.  His K per 9 numbers sucked in the minors.

It already was. 

 

And then Albers went out and promptly blew the save.

 

This is all what have you done for me lately - Barnes produced when he just struck guys out rather than give his defense a chance to boot the ball all over the joint.

 

In my book Hader is the most trustworthy option in this pen. However - Hader is a situational lefty by trade and I can understand "management's" approach that he's more beneficial to the team as a Wild Card reliever.

Lots of judgment for a guy who has pitched to a handful of batters.  Time to make lowball offers for Holland.

He’s the only guy I’ve ever seen throw that hard with that much sink. I get he doesn’t miss as many bats as we’d like him to, but pretty hard to square that up.
