Chasing saves is hazardous to your ERA

Postby Chopper » Fri Sep 24, 2004 1:49 am

Who will close remaining Indians games?
Chasing saves is getting a little too exciting lately. Been a very rough couple days for late inning guys...seems nobody is very safe; Foulke, Dotel, Wickman, Affeldt, Graves, Valentine, Yan, Ryan. You put together the combined stats for the last 2-3 days for these guys and you're probably in double digit ERA's and BS's.

Betancourt got the op tonight. Anybody think there will be others? Can't really afford to put Wickman out there any more
Blessed are the cheesemakers.

I have Hermanson and Affeldt on my team! Last night killed me!
You gotta get those saves though and they give you the chances at least. Fortunately for me, Save Opps count.

I would still not have a problem with Affeldt despite the horribe game he had. Take away last night's game and he's having a sparkling September run.

We'll I can't really drop him, the SP,RP eligiblity is too nice to pass up. I just hope my relievers can keep their ERAs under 100 from now on! I'm hoping Santana will help cut that ERA down for me. Unfortunately, it's impossible to pitch a negative ERA. :-D

Chasing wins is hazardous, too.
Contreras
Beckett
Zito

Yeah...no wins...ERA went up from 3.39 to 3.45...Foulke and Benitez, too.

I've got a wide lead in ERA...0.01 in WHIP. Santana and Od. Perez helped out last night.
