Is Buttery the future closer? He’s nasty looking!

 

I watched Buttrey pitch several times between Pawtucket and Portland over the last few year. At times he looked the part - big, nasty and could get it up in the high 90's. Other times his command would be a mess and velo in low 90's. He was like a box a chocolates. Maybe he finally figured something out. I always felt like the potential with this cat was there if he could put it all together.

Peralta getting the night off? Some bum came in and blew it for KC.

Lead was blown in the 8th and KC lost it in the bottom of the 9th.

 

Alvarado pitched the 8th up 3 runs. I didn't see anyone warming for the 9th so not sure if this is a 2 inning save opps...

So Romo goes 4 days in a row after 1 appearance in 2 weeks, lol.

They were saving him up for a big run lol.

Conley got the save for Miami. He pitched the 9 yesterday up 4 as well. Looks like they might be trying him out as closer down the stretch.

0 posts in 24 hours? Damn I hate the end of baseball season...

 

Neris with the save for Philly. Hunter pitched the 8th and Neshek pitched in the 6th.

Going forward I can see a lot of managers going with the Committee approach which sucks for fantasy.

Buttrey...Did Scioscia finally make a decision?  This guy's numbers are phenomenal!

so pretty much there is no one you can depend on considering Neshek got the last save attempt...

Nope. I'm avoiding that situation.

He looked good. The only hit was off a slider below the zone that Fowler got lucky to get a bat on. He throws a hard fastball with a decent slider and change up. I think he sticks.

His actions say he has.   He has closed the last 4 save situations

I think the reasonable thing for most leagues would be to go to holds plus saves as a category. Or half hold plus saves.

Need to decide on using Steckenrider next week, could use a save our two. Marlins seem to be going with Conley or Barraclough though.

No thanks

 

How about Yes. Clinched the NL East with a clean save. Better than Minter.

Sadly it seems Minter's time as closer has come to a close.

Yes. I have them both so I don’t mind either way, I think Viz is up now.
