Melancon's scoreless inning last night looks better in the boxscore than in real-life.  His location was not sharp and he gave up a couple of very loud outs.  I don't think he's close to factoring into the committee yet.

I know nothing and you shouldn't listen to anything I say.

Was either Watson or Dyson available tonight though?

Dyson had thrown the last three days but Watson was available.

The Padres had a bunch of RH bats due in the 9th.

Melancon was my first cut when someone was due back from the DL in NewZA.  Now, I have no idea what to do with him.

I held him all year on the DL, dropped him and added Dyson/Watson when they were named the co-closers, then re added him this AM.  :bag:

Was surprised he wasn't waiver claimed in Uber, even as a potential trade chip flyer by a lower tier team.

I was surprised too, given how quickly Maurer, McCarthy and Grimm were scooped up. There's also a "closer" on the waiver wire.

Vizcaino to the DL. Winkler/Minter probably already owned in most leagues anyway.

Treinen was the best closer buy this year, he’s got a 99 mph sinking fastball. Silly.

I feel like this just adds to the evidence that relievers are so predictable from year to year (unless you’re talking about the few elites).

 

ETA - obviously I meant unpredictable

I think there are 4 tiers

Elites - generally won't pay for them

Tier 2 - try to get as many of these as possible and hope you don't get one that assaults women

Good luck - mostly avoid these, but admittedly doing so prevents me from getting a guy like Treinen

Skills without saves (yet) - won't pay for an Andrew Miller, but will load up on the dollar derby and hope you end up with a Bear Claw or equivalent.

For roto anyway, points and H2H are too format specific.

Orioles working their way towards getting as much out of Britton in a trade as they did in the 2016 AL Wild Card Game

I think they are in pace to lose 117 games, and I don’t think they’re that good,

That’s a rather amazing fall from grace in a year and a half considering there hasn’t been much turnover on the roster since then.

Melancon is gonna be the closer sooner than later. We’ve seen the Sam Dyson story before and Watson is better used in earlier high leverage spots. 

This. 

I’m sure I’m not smarter than Bochy, but come on man.

Tepera DL'd. 

Clippard got the save last night, Gibby mentioned Oh in the huddle this AM. 

Jays are saying Osuna will get the job back August 4th but there will be fan pressure to trade him if they can.

I'm not sure of my exact reaction when I saw 'Epic Problem quoted you in the closer thread,' but it was somewhere between sadness and fear.

Hand to the Cleveland's. 

Mucks up the closer situation, assuming he will get some saves but not be the primary

I'll be very surprised if Allen's role is changed.  Maybe if they get to the 9th without using Hand and there's an army of L's coming up, but knowing how Tito manages he'll probably have already used him unless they just took the lead in the 8th.

... and looks like Yates for the time being in SD, though he could be traded as well.

I'm guessing someone will be willing to give up a premium prospect for him since he has 2 1/2 more years of control (and he may be great) whereas Stammen only has 1 1/2 (and he's just pretty good).  If that's the case then bye bye Yates then slide Stammen in there.  If no one offers enough then keep Yates and consider moving Stammen for a lesser return.  Could certainly move both, but would they be comfortable gutting their pen that deep?  Preller has proven...umm...unorthodox(?) before though.

Gallo homered off Hand and Allen, the latter was a bomb that is probably still in the air.
