Mr. Turnbow for Mayor

Yost didn't like the fact that Adams was pitching so deep into the count on every hitter. Even in his good saves Adams was giong 20+ pitches which is hard on a closer. Adams mechanics are also apparently off resulting in a dip in velocity.

Honestly, I was a Mike Adams owner during my drafts but I heard a couple rumors and read some speculation about Ned Yost starting to really like Turnbow during Spring Training and I followed him pretty closely. Now I own him in 1 of my leagues but since I had 5 closers already in my other big money league I recommended him to my buddy who was struggling. Shoulda just gone with him in both...

Hopefully Turnbow will get a good amount of chances to prove himself this week. With what he has done so far, everything seems great, but there is not much to base it on. I will feel uneasy if, in the upcoming week, he gets 2 saves, blows one save, and puts up a 3.89 ERA. While that wont kill me fantasy-wise, it does show me that week one was just a couple hot outings from a B rate pitcher....which he very-well just might be.

Yes he is, for now. His control is not good though. Honestly, I don't think he's hit the catcher's target once. Once some of those missed targets turn into more walks and/or belt-high fastballs in the wheelhouse, he's going to struggle a bit. As a fan, it's like a 98 mph heart attack with every pitch he throws. But, I'll ride his run for now and be prepared for Adams or Wise to get the job sometime later.


Reminds me of MacDougal. He'll get opps and some saves for sure but he is very risky.

As a disgruntled Adams owner, I would like to know if I can drop Adams...even if Turnbow fails, will the manager go back to Adams or will he throw DeLaRosa or Botallico out there first?

I don't know if anyone else just saw that 1-2-3 ninth, but that was very impressive. Lee was just blow away.

Turnbow is very impressive, I believe he will do great in Milwaukee, but as a Brewers fan I know that we'll trade him for some other prospect like the Kolb deal. I've watched Turnbow everytime he's got a save, and haven't seen to many guys actually get around on the guy, if you watched tonight, Rameriz got jammed at the wrists and popped it out to Billy Hall. Then Lee and Burnitz went down swinging.

he hit 99 on the radar gun, Maddux worked with him and feels he "fixed" Turnbow.

hey i picked the guy up in all leagues and was skeptical at first, but after watching him 2nite, I am a believer he is gonna be that mega sleeper closer of the year with a ton of saves and strikeouts.

Turnbow looks real good, blowing guys away, as long as he throws strikes, he will keep this up.
