You are right, he hasn't been as bad as I thought. I misread some of the numbers.

I think the closer experience Bell has could speak louder to Gibson than any number.

Andrew Bailey who had been cleared to pitch today, is now unavailable. Not good news.

Lingering soreness. Wouldn't be surprised to see him visit Dr. Freeze and then it would be:

Alright I've had about enough of hoping for Axford to regain his form and get the closer job back. Another TERRIBLE outing yet again today!!!! It's got to be getting close to time to just write him off. Henderson has doing just fine as the closer anyways right?

Henderson has been money all the way up until last night when he took the loss, but it wasn't anything close to a meltdown. Ax is having issues and I definitely wouldn't have him in the lineup. I wouldn't own him in 12 team mixed or shallower. I'm stashing him in a deeper league in hopes that he rights the ship but I doubt they give him the role back unless Henderson goes down to injury.

Yeah, for "peace of mind". Well, we'll see. After seeing how numerous teams downplay major injuries the last few years, I wouldn't believe a word anyone says.

Bailey placed on the DL with an undisclosed bicep injury. Safe to assume his chances of closing are now over.

Holland just blew the save. Entered 9th with 1-0 lead. Single, single, single, double play, intentional walk, infield single....tie game.
