Crap. I really needed the win and save from Holland and Nathan in a pts league but it never even made it to Nathan.
Alcides just keeps chugging along with a .280 avg and 7 SB's (now). I considered him the sale version of Andrus but Andrus does hit at the top of the texas order vs the bottom of the KC order. And he knows how to walk.

He just lost it in the 8th. It was shades of owning him last year. Sometimes he just motors for a CGSO, and other times he just completely and totally loses it. The damage was limited tonight and thankfully he isn't in line for the Loss.

He was taken out quickly because he had thrown 100 pitches. Like I said, the damage was limited. The problem is when he hits that road bump in the 3rd or 4th inning and doesn't get a quick hook. Those were the games that I remember 8 ER where he just can't get through.
