Mar/April Closer Thread 2018

Jeez, Albers stinks. 

 

Have to think Counsell might just say F it and let Hader close out games starting in the 8th from now on. Eventually it wears on a team to lose so many games in the 8th or 9th inning.

Anyone have any thoughts on the Milwaukee situation?

He pretty much did that yesterday.  That doesn't really work for two days in a row though

How do you give up a walk-off in the top of the of the 9th? ?

His stuff is better than Holland now. I can see this sticking with Holland in 8th.

 

I hope not. :(

Love, 

 

Every Norris Owner

 

 

As someone who owns neither, I find this extremely unlikely. Holland will get his bearings and then close. Unless he just never gets it together. “Better stuff” doesn’t even matter. Often want more flexibility with those guys anyway.

It's funny.

 

Last year with LAA everyone completely dismissed Norris and me, being the saves vulture I am, immediately grabbed him hoping to squeeze literally a couple saves out of him. He got me almost 20!

 

This year, with STL....everyone is completely dismissing Norris and I, once again, am hoping to squeeze a few saves out of the situation! HA.

Holland will be closing in no time. He's been scoreless since after his first appearance. They are easing him back in.

 

Probably, but Holland owners still going to be very nervous if he boofs it next time out.

I doubt it unless Holland suddenly starts getting paid much less. Agree with it or not, that gives him a lot of leeway.

They gotta put Hader in as the closer. It's been a nightmare using Albers or Barnes. Either that or maybe give Jeffress a Crack at it. 

Since his first chance where the infield let him down, Barnes has been very good. I could see him still getting another chance given the other options, especially since everyone other than Hader has dropped the ball as well. I say that as a biased owner though.
