2019 May Closer Thread

Recommended Posts

This is Greg Holland we're talking about.  If he gave up 8 runs in his next 5 innings would anyone be surprised?

Not gonna lie, having Vizcaino the last two years and having to defend his honor against the naysayers - Minter finally getting the closer gig and totally pooping himself brings me some satisfaction

What’s up with these Atlanta losers?  Luke Jackson made his debut on my team and posted a 9.00 ERA and 3.00 WHIP, although he might as well be Dennis Eckersley compared to Minter, who posted an INFINITY ERA.  I thought that 54.00 was bad.  Try infinity.  My ego is taking a massive hit here because my league-mates are laughing at me.  I don’t need this type of stress in my life.

Minter is making Holland look like Mariano Rivera.

Atlanta is doing the best they can with their remaining options. They couldn't predict Vizcaino getting hurt and it's not there were any quality relievers just sitting in the free agent market.

Seriously

At this point is there anyone to roster in the Atlanta bullpen? I feel like Minter is just going to continue getting opportunities until they sign Kimbrel.

the whole braves bullpen is trash. if you are not in desperate need of a closer (rotisserie) I am not even bothering with these committees.

Is Alvarado still the main closer in TB or is it a committee? He hasn’t had a save in weeks and last save went to Castillo.

Jacob Webb Josh Tomlin is the guy to own in Atlanta     /s

 

 

In all seriousness...you might be right?  I dunno.  I doubt Jackson is removed from the primary role due to last night but...lol... getting to the point where chasing saves isn't worth rostering anybody in that pen.

Looks like a full blown committee

Right, I just meant their high leverage relievers.  The organization overall has done amazing via the draft/international free agency in recent years.

Ummm. No. Not part of the "entire pen" that would be traded. Pitching Panda is no doubt about of their future build and IMO the closer in July. I would think Smith & Watson for sure, they would obviously hope someone would take on Melancon too. I also am not the only one with this opinion.

I think you're missing the point. StickFig said, "When they trade the entire pen he will be the guy." This was in reference to Melancon getting another shot to close. So he said for Melancon to get another shot to close, the entire Giants pen would need to be traded. And then you posted a picture of Moronta saying you beg to differ, leading me to believe you didn't understand StickFig's point.
