He must be yelling ‘ball’ before he throws each pitch.

In 2017 he gave up 2HR once and never 3. In 2018 he never gave up more than 1. Guess we have different definitions of "very prone".

So Swarzak head and shoulders above everyone else or did I miss something?

 

As a mariners fan, I would think so. He was put into the 9th straight off the DL rather than eased in in low leverage. That said, it was only one game. Hopefully they get into a save situation tonight to give us some clarity goms

Not sure where exactly Minter sat last year with FB, but was 93-95 yesterday...SL at 89

I am seeing that Viz won't be able to go consecutive nights, or twice within 3 days (CBS)...

IF Minter is feeling good, it seems to be within higher-probable outcomes that he takes over as closer, imo

Minter and Vizcaino going to be close to an even split on saves like last year? I honestly didn’t really follow the Braves much at all last year so I only really have the stats to go on. Does Minter have a legitimate chance to be “the guy” for ATL?

FWIW Fangraphs has his avg FBv at 96.9 in '18, 96.5 in '17, 94 yesterday.

Lol. At this point Cishek is a decent flyer as well.

Cishek looked awful two nights ago.  Walked the bases loaded and didn't get anyone out before he was pulled, which immediately led to Cubs losing the game.  I doubt Maddon goes to him in a save situation any time soon.

As far as the Cubs go, I’m very confident that it’s going to be Morrow the minute he’s activated as Maddon has even said so much. Not really speculating on the other guys in the meantime.

What do people think of Robertson being in high leverage roles? He was just dropped in my league and my first thought is that I am not going to let three games determine his fate when he has been so good for so long. I’m still thinking he is the set up guy/closer depending on situations.... am I wrong here?

Are you in my league on Fantrax?  I just dropped him.  Without saves he has no value on there in H2H points league.  Thought he'd be the closer but that was clearly never the case.  Not going to waste a roster spot. Not like people are stashing Britton or Ottavino in these leagues. Better RP who aren't closers.  But I guess it depends on your leagues if holds count for something, etc.

He should be owned. Possibly benched until he figures it out. Although it would be hard me to to bench him if I owned him.

 

I do think that Philli will be annoying to chase for saves. So he's not a necessary hold in shallow leagues/10 teamers.

I am not lol I’m in league with good friends and it’s saves/holds... so I see value in picking him up.

Nice to see Alvarado used in the 9th while Castillo was used against the “best hitters” in the 8th.  Although to be fair, it’s hard to tell where exactly the good hitters are in the giants lineup.

Alvarado and Castillo are both so filthy that they both need to be owned IMO. At least in roto.
