I did pick him up but I am ready for some bad numbers too. Their next series is at Philly and Coffey does suck despite what he has done so far in Milwaukee.

I didn't make the rules, but have no problem reminding you how to read them.
Probably doesn't help reminding. Have a good one.


because these reminders/complaints really help with the clutter.

Nothing personal against you Maris but getting sick of one person making an "inappropriate" post and others calling them out, then others debating the legitimacy of the post. Just let ppl post what they feel is important b/c sometimes information you think is worthless others might feel is important, you never know when something good is gonna sneak in. and if its crap like im writing....just let it go

OK, had to get that off my chest, im off my soap box, i apologize to everyone that had to read my rant. :-X :-X :-X :-X

Maris is right.
But you guys can still post whatever you want, just put it in another thread...like the Game Commentary Thread.

maris,

people come to this to get their closer info. If a guy ask why paps did not pitch and was wondering why that is exactley what this site is for. You told him to go somewhere else and look...what is the point on this thread if we we are supposed to go else where to figure this out.

You guys think Coffey will be the primary set-up man when Hoffman returns?

I do. Go back a couple of pages and I go through his appearances this season. Macha is using him in all the high leverage situations.

In postgame presser Manny Acta says brand new bullpen by tomorrow. Any idea who is closing?

The Yahoo note says Saul Rivera was optioned to AAA after today's game. Rivera is the guy that Havok has 2nd in line behind Hanrahan.

Here's the blurb from Rotowire:
The Nats optioned Rivera to Triple-A Syracuse following Sunday's loss to the Marlins, a game in which Rivera was asked to close with a one-run lead and instead gave up four runs on two hits and three walks, the Associated Press reports.
Recommendation: Rivera truly was awful, two days in a row, but he's also being used as a scapegoat for an overall team collapse to start the season. "The incompetence of the bullpen was drawn to a head today," said assistant general manager Mike Rizzo.
(Rotowire.com)


Beimel is the only guy that's been any good. Are there any prospects that they might bring up that would have a shot at closing?
