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. 

I don't think Street can stay healthy for a full season, so that part should take care of itself.  If he does, he'll put up a 5+ ERA.  Scioscia is pretty dumb, but even he can't sit by and let that happen.

Greg Holland gave up another ball to the warning track but pitched a clean inning for SV #3.

Coors will be a truer test.

Oak's going to be a mess. Casilla in for the 8th v the Anaheims with a 4 run lead since its 2/3/4 due up.

And Lorenzen had already pinch hit... but storen will get some saves if he's the backup plan when Iglesias can't go b2b

Reds suck. Not gonna be a whole lot of them winning in the 9th, nevermind in back to back games.

There's some terribly flawed logic on display here

Top 10 closers last year, 4 of them were from sub .500 teams, 2 of them on teams that lost over 90 games. Bad teams can still get plenty of save ops. It comes down to the closer living up to his responsibilities and keeping the job for 162 more than the # of wins the team gets

Closers on bad teams are great to have.  They don't win many games but typically all their wins are in close games so they are all save opportunities...plus they are spread out so they don't get overused.

OK. We aren't talking about the closer for the Reds though. We are talking about the backup closer.

I think he's a good stash, especially early. Iglesias didn't have a full Spring Training so no reason to push him, even in back to backs yet. And, to my knowledge, Price hasn't come out and said 'this is ####### my guy' about anyone either.

Closer Monkey has it as a committee and it should be looked as such.

Price needs to be quoted with profanity included, amirtie?

Storen got the save yesterday, he has some experience and the others don't. Not saying he's the guy but I'll be damned if he doesn't have as good of a chance as the others do. :shrug:

Everyone outside Glover has been a mess early on, so a trade is possible. Treinen does not seem long for the role.

Freddy Galvis can take anybody deep.  I'm still boldly standing by my Treinen NL SV leader schtick.

Not sure I should be holding onto all four of my lottery tickets - Storen, Ottovino, Ziegler and Strickland - at this point.  May bring one up into the UT hole to FAAB out - thinking Ziegler or Strickland.

I'd drop Strickland.  Melancon has $60M worth of leash and it's unclear whether Strickland is the guy who'd get the 9th if Melancon had worked the two days prior.

Only reason I am rostering Strickland is as a Melancon handcuff that can help lower ratios and add a K/inning.

I think Law is the guy to handcuff Melancon with, but I'm an idiot.

Strickland's K and WHIP value has diminished a bit since he first came up.  He's been above average in both categories but hardly elite. 

Bochy had plenty of opportunities to give Strickland the 9th in the past few years but never did.  I don't think he's worth rostering in mixed leagues.
