Might be nice to compile a complete list of closers and possible outcomes going into the trade deadline. I'm sure some of this is wrong as the scotch is flowing so feel free to correct/addend anything

Pre-Deadline Recap or my take at least   ARZ - Holland and a bunch of trash, dont see much changing at the deadline ATL - Cool Luke Jackson gots it ROS i think BAL - Avoid - commit

Translation: “I’d like to get him out of the closer role but all of my other options suck just as bad.”

And if you had Ollie Drake, you are correct. Your prize is him not getting another save opp for three weeks....

 

Went to the judges, and it turns out the correct response was Castillo. You receive no points, and God have mercy on your soul (if you chase Rays saves)

Seriously what is going on in Tampa?

I mean, of all the franchises in the majors, it can't be surprising to you that the Rays don't care about traditional closer roles.

Could they narrow down the field to at least four guys?

It was nice while it lasted with Hendriks and given that he was a FA pickup I can't complain too much, but it seems like he finally woke up and remember he's Liam Hendriks.  Those career ratios speak for themselves.

Does anyone have any feel-good stories about who you were able to get selling high on Hendriks before this past week?

I'm not worried about him. Today was yet another crappy situation they threw him into to try and bail out the other guys in the pen. He gave up the inherited runs and then one himself. The other rough outing he had recently on the 21st was his 3rd day in a row after throwing 2 and 2/3 innings in his previous two outings in which he earned clean saves. Also, last night was yet another clean save. His career numbers don't mean much to me after what he's done all year.

Hendricks in trouble with his job then?

 

I wouldn't say he's in danger of losing it yet.  But let's be real: coming into this year, he had a career 4.72 ERA and was designated for assignment 5 times.  That doesn't exactly inspire confidence.

Many pitchers have had high ERAs and then became better pitchers later in their careers. He's been lights out. Thrown into a poor situation today.

Ask and ye shall receive..lolol

 

Gotta really question why Woodward went with LeClerc over Martin today.  Third day in a row for LeClerc, not to mention he's proven that he can't handle the pressure of the 9th.  Martin meanwhile had yesterday off, converted the save on Friday, and has been lights out all month.

Who cares about what Hendricks numbers were before this year?

He didn’t throw high 90’s heat with a great strikeout rate before this year. 

Mark Canha, who shouldn’t be playing CF, taking a weird angle on the game-tying 2B didn’t help matters today.
