politte makes me angry

Postby benjapage » Sat Jun 21, 2003 10:31 pm

i can't drop him because he's still a closer. if he keeps his job and i drop him, then i'm an idiot. but he did it again tonight, earning the loss and this stellar line: 0.1 INN, 2 HA, 4 ER

is lopez going to take his job, now? god, i'd love to know...i hope i'm online when the announcement is made.

I also have Politte on my team. You think I should drop Cliff and pick up Lopez or Lyon?

lyon doesn't make me physically ill the way that politte does. but is he likely to keep his role? doubtful. lopez is a great bet to lower your era and whip--but for some reason, they don'twant to give him a shot as closer.

i'm holding on to politte until an announcement is made. some kind of torture.

After Clement got crushed I waived him for Lopez. I was thrilled to see Politte's collapse, but upon closer inspection Lopez was no better.

I think Lopez would be the closer tomorrow if he didn't get lit up as well. I guess that happens at the Hiram.

On the bright side, my SS is Cabrera, who padded his stats nicely with that 3 run tater.

The game was not at Hiram in San Juan, it was at the Big Owe. I wonder if the Jays picked up Acevedo with the expectation of trying him as a closer and hope he recovers the form he had last year.
