Also, getting away from Minter... 

Is Leclerc officially done as closer in Texas? meaning he wont be given the chance again this year based off what people are reading. Woodward keeps saying he intends to go back to him.. but as the days tick away.. its becoming less and less likely.

I’m holding due to his high Ks although I do not expect him to see the ninth barring injury

before getting injured Ken Giles most recent saves were.. June 4, May 19, May 10.

I don't know how long Giles will be out, but the Jays might not even have many save opportunities while he is gone.

 

Or they will get 3 in 4 days.  Saves are flukey

LOL that's a great point, I'm going to add it to my potential closer evaluations.

On Giles, man, anytime I hear "elbow" I cringe.  Sounds like it's not too bad, but you never know.  Next we hear, he could be going for a "second opinion", then "Dr. James Andrews" and we know where that leads.

 

Biagini might be a good spec add beyond just 10 days.

Exactly I was thinking the same thing with Giles I cringed as well not good if its his elbow but than I read it should only be 10 days, you really never know with elbows I just traded for him too.I personally wouldnt roster anybody else In that bullpen.

Didn't he say he feels fine?

 

I never ever listen to what a player says about his own health. They lie. When I hear an injured player talk about how he feels, I always envision the guy on Monte Python’s Holy Grail: “It’s only a flesh wound!”

Seriously Angels?

 

Surely it's because Robles pitched 2.2 innings already this week. Right? Right?!

Not saying I know anything here... Just talking myself off the ledge. 1.2 innings pitched Tuesday is the straw I'm grasping at.

Incase anyone still has hopes of the Red Sox deciding on one guy to close (they won’t), it’s Josh Smith warming for the ninth with a 7-6 Sox lead.

Josh Smith in for the save for Boston instead of Hembree.  Their announcers can't figure out why it's not Hembree.  Hembree didn't even warm up, so they were wondering if he was sick or something.
