Gregerson came on to start the 9th. he did get 2 out, but also gave up 2 hits. then they go to left handed Tommy Layne to face Heyward. then after Heyward singled, they go to Nick Vincent to face Justin Upton. Upton struck out to end the game, save to Vincent.
He doesn't/didn't deserve the Save last night and it was all teed up for him. Gregerson, as the infamous George Steinbrenner once said of SP Jim Beattie after a terrible start, SPIT THE BIT! He has shown over the last 4 days that he doesn't have the nerve or consistency to be a reliable closer just yet. 2 Saves (one facing just one batter) and 2 Blown saves. I dropped him yesterday...and would have done so even IF Street wasn't ready to return. Seems to me having him take a roster space is more risky to my ERA and WHIP than the upside of getting a save. What a blown opportunity for him.
