When your LH options out of the pen are Robby Scott and Brian Johnson, there's a need 

 

not when you have joe kelly who has lefties hitting him at a 3 for 44 clip this year...lol

 

like i said, STUPID to give up an everyday young talent like devers

Parker getting set before the pitch...  

This is the laziness that frustrates many of us, and just adds to a thread that is already difficult for many people to read through. It’s only 2 pages, and question was asked and answered one page be

Yeah I mean it sounds like a lot but if you're SD would  you move him for anything less? 

 

Also as a Hand owner, he's not allowed to go anywhere where he wouldn't close.  There aren't many of em but Boston is certainly 1.

Boston could give up Devers and not miss a beat . They have internal players they could replace Devers with and they could also trade for Moustakas another leftie bat . Boston could also fill a bullpen spot with Pomeranz and not

make a move

They do? Their farm system is the worst in baseball.

Hand isn't a true one inning guy, he's went multiple innings 9 times this year. Is a converted starter, could easily fill a Andrew Miller type role.

 

The value of a reliever in the playoffs like Hand is enormous.  

 

I have a feelings the Padres are asking for the moon but will settle for less.  But I could be wrong.

Pedroia will be back 

They have Holt and Nunez that can. Replace Devers and would improve the defense and a slight improvement in offense . But this is not the place for that discussion.

Thing is Herrera brought back what? Nobody that will be onbthd major league roster anytime soon . 

It is possible for Boston to trade Devers and a low level minor leaguer to get Hand .

Thing is Herrera is a FA after the year. Hand is controlled for multiple.

Any reason why Morrow isn't in the save situation?

Not available, according to Cubs broadcast. No idea why, but can speculate it has something to with them having a double header today.

Parker nor Bedrosian are top closers...Angels have blown more saves that anyone. Parker was pitiful today. 


Literally no one called them top closers...

If he has to sit out a game why wouldn't you pitch him there and have him sit the second game?  No guarantee there will even be a save situation in that one.

Most logical people would go at it that way. Maddon beats to a different drum.

Wilson gets the 9th and blows it.  Why no Morrow?  He hasn't pitched since Sunday.

 

Dude's had like one appearance in the past two weeks.

 

Starting to get worried...

Supposedly he has a bad back according to the IT show on MLB.TV.  Take it for what its worth.

Yep. That's one appearance in 11 days if you include today.  Unless something is wrong, this is extremely bizarre. Absolutely zero reason not to have him out there today.

 

To be sure, this is Joe Madden we're talking about.

 

He may have woken up one morning and said to himself: I think I'll give Morrow a two-week vacation this June to keep him fresh.

 

Who knows

So, if it is an injury, anyone got a good read on the hierarchy in Chicago?  Haven't exactly been following their situation till now but thought it was Cishek/Strop, but Wilson went today.

Edwards is reportedly back throwing and due back by all-star break.  If he was dropped, feels like a worthwhile add to see what happens with Morrow, as he is very likely to get the gig and succeed if there's anything long-term going on with Morrow
