Personally, I use ESPN and without holds. But I think the Yahoo! method makes more sense. To me there's no reason why a guy who deserves to get the win should arbitrarily have a hold (or save, for that matter) wiped away.

By that rationale, a pitcher who pitches a complete game should get the save too when the game is close enough.  At least with saves and wins, these are clearly defined to be mutually exclusive.

Yes it's come up before and I think Yahoo! is the only platform that allows the W and hold for one guy.

The one situation I don't think has ever come up is a guy getting multiple holds in a game, or holding the game and then saving it, and how that would theoretically be scored.

fantrax also giving him credit for the win and hold

They're clearly defined either way. But that's an even dumber point considering the home pitcher always enters a tie game and the away pitcher always pitches more than 3 innings for a complete game.

FB sat 96+ with a wild amount of vertical movement, curious to it's spin rate because I bet it's awfully high...

SL almost acts more like a hybrid curve, 81 MPH with some good horizontal action to it.

 

It's going to be interesting to see if Webb gets a chance. He might not, but he did save 18 games last year in the minors. He does walk a lot of batters.

Jackson is still likely next in line.  He’s a different pitcher from when he was an SP...

 

https://twitter.com/mlbbowman/status/1122889871234932741?s=21

 

When he was an SP? He hasn't been a SP since 2014. He has zero starts in the Majors (106 appearances), and since 2014, he's started 5 games in AAA in 2015 and 1 game in AAA last year. In 123.1 MLB innings (all in relief), he has a 4.89 ERA and 1.54 WHIP, allowing almost 10 hits per 9 and walking over 4 per 9.

As a Braves fan, I'm so depressed about our pen, lol. Can't lie...I hope they give Webb a shot. I own zero shares of the Atlanta bullpen, but he can't be any worse than the dregs we've been running out there lol.

Its depressing.  If Minter loses his role, it could be anyone.  At some point they’ll get Venters and/or O’Day back, which should help.  Maybe move one of the young guys to the pen temporarily.  I think if they were going to sign kimbrel they would have done it by now

Greene with save #12. Gave up one hit with three strikeouts. Sporting a 1.29 era, just as we all expected.

He shouldn’t have pitched tonight after throwing 2 innings last night. He’s been dominating lately until tonight.

Leclerc is in his head. He needs a reset. Demote him. Make him earn it back.
