Wilson threw just 89 pitches but wouldn't you know it, Graves comes in for his 22nd save chance this year and unbelievably the Reds have won 22 games. If I didn't know better I would have sworn the Cincy manager has Graves on his fanatsy baseball roster :-D

Yep, currently 100% of the time Graves gets a save opportunity when the Reds win. Converted 18 and blown 4. Gagne would be a NO. 1 draft pick if he played for these guys.

Graves has had to pitch just once this season in a non save situation 8-o
The Reds have won all 22 games by 3 runs or less apart from a 4-0 win against LA the other night that Graves still got a save from.

Compare that to the Cards who have as good a record in the same division but give their closer sod all opportunities, and when he does get one he forgets what he's supposed to do :-t

Sorry, this post is just sour grapes on my part because I ended up drafting guys like Baez, Julio, Guardado and Issy who can't buy a save these days :~(

And Izzy (on my roster too) can't buy a save, but he sure likes to spot the opposing team some runs.

Question. Would you drop Eaton for Wilson?

Both Paul Wilson and Horacio Ramirez are FA's...I have Eaton, Carpenter, and Kennedy on my roster. Kennedy and Carpenter have been pretty hot. What would you do in my situation?

Wilson and Ramirez have been pretty hot as well.

My top 3 would be Ramirez, Carpenter and Eaton in that order.
I think both Wilson and Kennedy are overachieving and will come back down to earth a bit.

Thanks for the help guys. One more quick question...Kennedy plays San Diego (a good hitting team) his next two starts. Would you take the risk that he going to come back down to earth and drop him for Horacio Ramirez?

If Ramirez is available I would grab him. With any sort of run support this year he could have a 6-1 record instead of his current 2-3.

You shouldn't start Kennedy at Coors on Tuesday anyway no matter how good he has been there so far.
