Smilegate: Was Mariano Rivera smiling as he was carted off after tearing his ACL?

Yes, definitively.

I do not understand this. His pitches are nearly the same velocity (FB down 1mph) and movement according to PitchFX. He's using them the same amount but hitters are not fooled at all. They are swinging at significantly fewer pitches outside of the strikezone. This has to be something like he is tipping his pitches. I will scoop him up in any league where i can stash him on the bench.

Would be funny if I picked up two closers in a matter of minutes while watching the same game due to Bell and Street (Mujica and Cashner). I guess that's the benefit of staying in to watch baseball on a Friday night. :-D

Sorry I was off grabing Cashner in every league. 3/3 sweet.

Yeah Bell is broken, no way they can let him continue.

After picking up Dolis and Cashner today I now have 5 closer for my 9 man staff in a NL only. This is a problem. People may not want to trade and their value will be minimal. Its a good problem to have....... I think

Andy Parrino just got the IBB two at bats in a row. I can guarantee you that's never happened to him before, nor will it ever happen again

Me too. I have ended up with five closers as of Sale's change, and one guy has zero actual relievers, the Mariano owner has three other solid closers, and I have no trade compatibility with the Storen and Bailey owners. Most guys in my league are happy to have two closers and the rest starting pitchers. The guys with more than two are pretty lucky with theirs so far.

Only closer I drafted this year was Sergio Santos in the 16th round. Now I own Robertson, Casilla, and just made the Cashner add. The one dude that owned Rivera and Wilson has been sending me angry texts on an hourly basis since ~9pm last night. ;-D
