Anything to read into the Yanks bullpen usage last night? Rights heavy lineup outside of Davis. Robertson in the 7th vs the bottom of the lineup  going into the top and gave up 1 unearned. Betances in the 8th vs the meat. Green in the 9th.  Britton un the 10th and gives up 1.

IDK if the other pen guys are tired but the ordering of Robertson/Betances/Green/Britton given that lineup speaks volumes.  Robertson's shoulder has probably set him back in the pecking order for good.  I imagine ZB gets the lion's share despite the 2 UER and Green should not be overlooked despite what Boone said.  DR and DB will be available as needed for fireman duties dependent upon everyone's performance.

Dominguez has been absolutely terrible the last month. He has to be removed from the anointed closers role after today right? 

 

He came in the 7th so it may already have happened.

Smith is probably done as closer.  He’s been shaky lately.

 I don't know if I would say he's been shaky though - last time out he got the first two and then an error and homer. Other than that . Am I missing something?

Absolutely pitiful right now. Era over 10 for this month. I will have to cut bait at the beginning of next week.

Okay, they need to seriously just shut Jansen down.  This is pathetic.  Not to mention I can't really afford any blown wins for Kershaw at this point, so Jansen's screwing me on multiple fronts.... <_<

Fields was just transferred to the 60 day DL.

 

I think it would be a committee with Alexander, Ferguson, Maeda, etc. 

 

Stripling is being activated during this weekend series, he should definitely be in the mix.

 

But yeah, I need another closer this week... can't trust Kenley.

So my closers are a dumpster fire. I need some clarity on the following two situations:

1) Phillies - Sir Anthony has hit a wall. But to be fair he’s been used a lot of multiple innings or more than a typical 3 out save situation. Is Neshek the guy moving forward or will Dominguez be able to reclaim high leverage roles if he’s able to rebound?

2) Braves - Minter has had some back issues which caused a few blowups. Winkler has done ok in his absence but Vizcaino is nearing rehab. Who’s the favorite to close ROS if Vizcaino can return without setbacks?
