Alberts back in. If he doesn’t screw up here he is probably the guy

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. 

 

1. He was starting in the minors.

2. He does have a GB rate near 80% so far to help compensate for the lack of strikeouts.

Albers looks like Walter Sobchak strolling around the mound after a K.

Don’t care what he looks like, if he gets saves, he needs to be owned lol

Barnes is better than Albers. More swing and miss stuff at least. Hader's going to get some save opps too if the Brewers starters can ever go like 7 innings with a lead.

Haters gotta hate. He got Ozuna and Carpenter, so pretty good

Problem here is that Albers threw 30+ pitches tonight. Probably Barnes tomorrow if they get a chance.

Carpenter hit the ball on the screws - just right at Cain.

Ravech said on the telecast that Cousell told him he trusts Albers more than the rest in closing.  Take that for what you will.

Thanks, I won't be so quick to write him off.

What minor league stats? Lol.. all 2 season the guy had down there. Dude is sick with it. Throws flames and it moves. 

 

Also, FYI I’m not calling for the end of Holland by any means, I just thought that comment was funny.

Job done and the manager trusts him, unlike Hader and Barnes.

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

 

Jesus no kidding lol

what kind of leash are we expecting for holland? two more blown saves ? 

 

Based on what we saw today, he needs more time in the minors. he can easily blow the next few opportunities no problem. 

I mean he has been in the league for a long time, no real excuse for this extraordinary poor control and complete lack of location. Look at his pitch map , guy basically missed all his pitches pretty much lol.

I thought Albers looked decent, but I'm just trying to say that he didn't dominate them.
