What's going on in Chicago? Fry has pitched pretty well lately...not great but solid. Over his last 10 outings, he has a 2.45 ERA and 0.95 WHIP in 7.1 innings (17 K and 3 BB). He got the last save opp...will he be getting future opps or is that a fullblown committee? As bad as Fry was until recently, he still seems like the best option in that dreadful bullpen.

Rondon with the 8th today. Bottom of the order. Osuna will face Haniger, Cano, Seager (Cruz) in the 9th. Hit that “like” if you’re rooting for Osuna to blow it! ?????

 

Hinch actually has multiple personality disorder. 

Every night, it's a different personality making decisions, and one happens to prefer Rondon and the other Osuna.

I'd wager that Chapman is out for more than the 10 day minimum and likely won't be back for 3 weeks.  

You beat me to it. I was going to say 3 weeks as well. Makes no sense for them to rush him back given that they have other options. They just need to hang on to the top WC with the division long dead.

Who would you say is the leading candidate between Robertson, Britton, and Betances?

Betances has been by far the best of the 3 but it wouldn't shock me if Boone keeps him in the setup role and we see D-Rob or Britton get opportunities.

Wonder if Neris gets another crack at the ninth again soon

 

He came in during the fourth tonight - he has a steep hill to climb to merit further mention in this thread.

In my opinion Seranthony is safe in his role. This was a blown save but if you watched the game you’d have seen he was pitching well and it was far from an implosion. 

 

He got the first two outs fairly easily albeit the first one was an excellent catch by the LF. He gave up a hit to a great hitter in Soto on what was an excellent at bat in which he fought off many good pitches from Seranthony. Then gave up the hr to Zimmerman. 

 

I think his his performance this year in that role has served the Phillies well and has earned him a longer leash.

No save for strop?

Nope.  I wasn't watching it, but from what I can tell Maddon didn't let him pitch the 9th for no reason.  It was still a save opportunity since he came in during the 8th when it was 4-2.  Thanks Joe...
