Looks that way.  I was glad I could grab Grilli in the league I have Osuna but I'm not even bothering in my H2H league.

I love baseball.  First game of the year and Jason Grilli is going into that greasy hair before every pitch and no one cares!  He just threw a slider that had a five foot break. :lmao:

Sam Dyson won't make it through the month as the Rangers closer right?  Oof, he's bad.

Didn't Bush give up the game tying home run the inning before anyway? (Yes, he did. Edwin hit it - not that Edwin/Bautista lighting this pair up is anything new).

Bush probably has the best arm but Dyson has earned some leash.

Didn't Dyson get fired at some point last year?  His 7k/9 rate isn't going to hold up as a closer, someone else is gonna get that job soon.  Bush, Jeffries, and Kela all seem like better options.

Bob Melvin uses Madson in a high leverage role vs the heart of the order in the 8th and brings in Casilla to pitch the 9th.

Jeanmar Gomez – 1 IP, 2 ER and the ugly save.  Jeanmar is like Omar from The Wire, except it is everyone else in the vicinity whistling and carrying a bat.  If Hector Neris isn’t owned in your league, he should be.

Pete said Neris was his 8th inning guy a few days ago, but I'd be surprised if he's actually next man up. It makes a lot more sense for a team like the Phils to keep him in the 8th. Let Benoit/Neshek build up some saves / trade value for the deadline and keep Neris from getting saves to keep his arb number lower next year. At least, I hope this is the plan.

The Anaheims are using Bud Norris in high leverage situations in the 7th inning.  Is there any doubt Huston Street is the closer when he is healthy?  Bedrosian is gonna have to throw multiple innings sometimes if they want to be .500, and Andrew Bailey is still Andrew Bailey.

Madson pitching the 8th again tonight against the heart of the Anaheims order.

 

ETA:  Ryan Dull looks like he'll get a chance for the SV in the 9th.  Run to the waiver wire
