What a job by Claudio tonight. 

 

Wouldn't be surprised if Bannister just continues to go to him in the 9th (even when Kela returns) until he gives him a reason not to.

Claudio has an insane GB rate, so that's a plus for him.

 

He didn't start ninth tonight and came in for the lefty, Hosmer (though he stayed on for righty Perez).   My read is he's still situational, and with Kela looming I'm not sure I'd invest much.   But if desparate for saves and have a spot (and already have Kela) why not?  He'd be below Kela on my list, and I'm typically an 'opportunity' guy on saves.

I think he was situational before he entered the 9th tonight but performances like that can take you from situational to "interim closer" awfully quickly. Especially since he was great last night in the 9th as well.

What do you guys think is the likelihood that Justin Wilson and/or Kelvin Herrera get dealt?

 

Nearly 100% for Justin Wilson. Herrera I don't think gets dealt.

they better get madson and doolittle....lol

That bullpen needs more than those 2 guys. Britton would be a better option if you are really trying to fix the bullpen instead of putting a bandaid on it imho

It will be a cold day in hell before the Nationals and Orioles do a trade

Madson has better numbers more stable injury wise and more closing experience. You combine that with Dusty Baker managing and it's probably him.

Yeah....having dusty as a manager means we have no idea which one will get chances. Id bet on Doolittle.

I'd go the other guess, he's a little old school for the lefty cl
