Taylor Williams IMPLOSION today. Magill and Altavilla not much better. Hirano time?

All relievers eat a** sometimes. Taylor's still the closer on this loser, pathetic, franchise. Maybe if he has more blowups, you can mine the reliever turd pile for guys like Magill and Altavilla.

I think there was a hole in the original argument. Mariners relievers crack under pressure.

Sucks, but he threw 2 hangers up there and the 2nd one he paid for it. I see an "injury delay" on the game cast. Did he get pulled for Bass because he got hurt, do you know?

Blue Jays reporters are saying he left with a hand/finger issue....

Sorry, I forgot that I can go back and check on the app now. So, after the HR he threw one pitch and then he had some issue with his hand. It looked like a blister issue. They examined his hand and talked to him for a bit, and then pulled him. Unfortunately, upon close inspection during their conversation, his hand was kind of shaking and looked really uncomfortable. This looks like it could be a more serious issue than a blister.

Worth noting as well that Giles threw 35 pitches off the mound today so he’s probably not too far away

I hope Sulser doesn't pitch the 10th.  He always gets in trouble the second inning he pitches.

You think he's going to remain the closer after today?

I think he will. I would not abandon ship until he actually is not in their for a save opp.

I think Hyde should have figured out by now he can't use Sulser a second inning.

Truth. But hey, at least now we get to see wild, fun happy Pete Alonso instead of Rage-aholic Pete. Lol

Raphy Montero went K - groundball - K in a 1-2-3 inning against LA, unfortunately it was 6-2 and a non-save, but he looked SHARP.

Truth.

I am being 100% serious when I say this.  I could have hit that ball out.  An 84 mph hanging breaking ball.

To many mouths to feed in Buffalo, I dropped him tonight, Giles will be back in a week or 10 days, he might get a save opp or 2 between now and then, not sure that is worth waiting for, just my opinion, good luck.
