it's weird, but even though hanranhan gave up a run today in the 7th, i am keeping him on my roster, and not adding wells. my nips are probably letting me down, but they are 2 for 2 tonight, so i am going with them.
What do we read into the Andrew Bailey save? He's been mentioned by his manager as a candidate to close, and his stats are ridiculous thusfar. Is he the hot pickup right now?

Geren wasn't sure if Bailey could work the two innings, but after retiring the Jays in order in the eighth, the skipper told him to do it again in the ninth.
"He continues to be impressive. He throws strikes and has multiple pitches, so it's a good place for him," Geren said.
WHERE'S a good place for him, skip? The eighth or the ninth?
Im starting to read that Baily may be the new Devine and split the saves with Zeigler..What, your closer cannot go 2 games back to back to close. Im not buying into the "he still sick" thing..I picked up Baily as insurance and am glad, you may see a handful of save a month here.
Mock hasn't had any control this year, or the K's that made him interesting last year. He's no more than the 3rd or fourth in line right now. I'd say its Wells right now, with Hanrahan coming back into the fold soon. After that Beimel or Tavarez depending on matchups. After that comes Mock and maybe Macdougal when he's ready. so: Wells/Hanrahan/Beimel/Tavarez/Mock... time to cut bait on Mock I think.
