    On CWS circumstance, doesn’t it stand to reason that Jace becomes the closer given Rondon’s horrid track record?

      I’m a big fan of Fry. He’s not there yet, but there’s a good chance he works his way into the mix

  2. Mike Honcho says:

    Why isn’t the ATL a “situation to avoid”? After Vizcaino blows a save, he says the other guys will get chances. The next day he sends the same guy out. Was that to put the final nail in his coffin or was he sucking up to the blood thirsty media the night before?

    • Rotoprofessor says:

      He may have felt Vizcaino still offered the b est shot, based on matchups, for that game. Plus he also called it a committee weeks ago, but Minter only got 1 opp. Sooner or later Vizcaino is going to force the issue and get himself removed

  3. Bartolo says:

    Any insight on the Angels or is Scoscia impossible to predict? Johnson pitched the 9th Wed night and Parker the 9th last night, both when they were behind. Anderson got a shaky save before that when those two were unavailable. Maybe a true committee right now?

    • Rotoprofessor says:

      Yea, I wouldn’t even try to guess. It’ll likely be a committee, until they import someone to fill the role
