Is soto no longer a thing?

Seems like it’s trending that direction, but it’s hard to say for sure at this point.

The quote said "keep things as is for now". How are you interpreting that as them moving on from Hand to Hudson as the closer?

Good lord Karinchak's curveball is unhittable just straight filth.

I love his energy too. He gets SO pumped up with each outing it's almost contagious. Karinchak is good for baseball.

I think he was joking, as if the manager supporting him was the kiss of death.

Yeah he blows - alternatives have been discussed ad nauseam upthread

Sorry to say but this outing doesn't change Staumont's status one bit, he's the closer. It was a 4 run lead, non-save situation, always terrible spot for a closer, and he managed to throw over 35 pitches, so I'd expect to see Holland most likely in a save opp tomorrow. 

You have to understand that he came to be closer because they started 14-8 or whatever, and that is why they called up Daniel Lynch too early also. It signified to the fanbase they are competing with their best team. I believe if they started 10-12 then Holland would still be closing games. But now they're on the fringe, and though they have sunk below .500 again, I think they'll keep Staumont in the closer role through a few rough outings like this.

He’s been solid in save opps and recently got a couple saves.

He just said committee closers, not mediocre (or worse) RPs. 

When is the last time you saw a closer committee where they weren't all mediocre, or worse?

**The manager not having settled on a closer in April is not a "closer committee."

Well, first, it’s late May, not April. Second, your first statement doesn’t change my statement whatsoever. He said committee closers, and you leapt into a post about mediocre relievers.

So, can you think of any?
