July Closer Thread 2017


Recommended Posts

apparently David Robertson is close to going to Boston (with Frazier).

 

I was thinking Kahnle was next, but he has not been as good lately as we was earlier in the season.

Rumor is that the Dodgers are after Rivero. 

 

I could see Rivero and McCutchen to the Dodgers for prospects.

MUCH better? better yes, but I wouldn't say much better. he is still giving up too many base runners.

For all of your whining during that stretch about how otherworldly bad he was, I figured you'd agree with me. He was terrible during that SSS, a 1.13 WHIP is not "too many baserunners" no matter how you try to rationalize it.

any closer that is giving up more base runners than IP is risky. a quality closer should not be putting that many runners on base.

This is a ridiculous post. 28 guys have 10+ saves this year. 7 have a sub-1.00 WHIP.

 

Are you suggesting that there are only 7 quality closers in the majors? Your posts about Colome were nonsensical a few weeks ago and they're even worse now. Bow out.

Not so fast on Swarzak. Sounds like Clippard coming back in deal. Has "closer experience."
