Remember when Eovaldi was a sure thing to be closer in BOS and Workman had no chance according to some in here?

That was fun.

Yeah that was funny just people with desperate closer situations I guess Eovaldi has always been mediocre at best.

 

To be fair, Boston was blowing leads left and right at the time and going by Eovaldi's performance coming out of the bullpen last season...

Thoughts on Pagan when Alvarado comes back? Surely he has done enough to lock it down right?

 

Have you not followed that bullpen at all for this entire season??  COUNTLESS threads all year long about nothing is a sure thing with Tampa and you may as well either flip a coin or roster as many of their arms as you can..lol

Definitely has the lion's share right now but TB is the least fantasy friendly bullpen in the league and it could be anyone on any given night.

Would still be a save opp if they bring Greene back out for the ninth, but the question is with the lead now four (and maybe counting) will they....

 

Melancon to try and finish out an 8-4 game. Not watching so not sure if the plan was give Greene the ninth and had to use him to bail out Martin in the eighth, then pulled the plug on him when they padded the lead, or whether Melancon was going to get the ninth no matter what. Greene did let an inherited runner score in the eighth, so still yet to have a good outing for the Braves.

If only his last name meant something! Rage dropped

 

Rage dropped? Entered the night 25-of-29 in save opps and only blown save since June 7, a K/BB ratio of 57/11, and as the unquestioned closer on a playoff team that plays a ton of close games, Can I have him?

Melancon will serve as Atlanta's closer moving forward, Gabe Burns of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Shane Greene has struggled since joining the Braves, surrendering five runs over 3.1 innings of work, so skipper Brian Snitker will roll with Melancon out of the closer's role moving forward. The right-hander tossed a scoreless frame Friday night in an 8-4 win over Miami, and he'll be the top option in save situations until further notice. Greene figures to shift to a setup role for the time being.
