Any thoughts on the WAS closer situation w/ the managerial switch?
Riggleman is looking at the same cast in the bullpen as ACTA was. MacDoug has been "ok" in save situations, and disastrous in non-save situations since the middle of June. His peripherals are beyond terrible!!! Thing is, just about everybody on the staff hasn't pitched that well in the last 30 days.Beimel has a 2.53 era in the last 30 but only a 9-6 k-bb rate. Newly acquired Sean Burnett's last 30 is 2.38/0.71 w/ a 9-1 K-bb rate, and thats the only thing that looks halfway decent.
If MacDoug has the job, he's easily the scariest option w/ that control rate, and I've watched him pitch a lot and he's even scarier than it shows. No clue where the dish is.
I just don't see any good options. Mock got recalled, but....???
Any other insight. For those that really need saves, AND can afford the whip/era risk, it could help. If nothing else, grabbing the guy and benching him so the others can't get the saves is at least something in some leagues.
