coming into tonight both Thayer and Gregerson had pitched the previous 2 games. San Diego has a save chance tonight, and it went to.. Tommy Layne, for the save.
Gregerson also pitched in the game, in the 8th. for what it's worth, Pittsburgh had Jones, Sanchez, Alvarez batting in the 9th and Jones/Alvarez are both LH batters to face LH Layne.

Gregerson is on an 18+ inning scoreless streak. Still think that Thayer would come in for the next save [probably not until Friday though]


*On a personal note, I am now a Frank Francisco owner: :-X



Hope you weren't starting Francisco. He keeps putting up 2-3 ER, nasty WHIP with narry a save. Why do I keep him active?

Thayer just placed on paternity leave, so Gregerson may have some saves value over the next couple days (at least).

SV Ops for BOS and LAA both tonight, but neither Aceves nor Frieri are used cause they were busy sucking last night. Related, is A. Bailey picked up a 1.1 IP Save tonight for Boston. Thoughts on him supplanting Aceves in closing games in Beantown?

Lopez has been getting some saves in San Fransisco.
Javier Lopez retired all four batters he faced Friday to earn his fourth save versus the Braves.
Now this is different. In fact, he faced as many batters tonight as he did total in his first three saves. Lopez entered the night with a .436 average against versus righties, so he's not going to getting save chances like this with any frequency; his remaining saves figure to be of the one- and two-out variety. Things lined up great for him tonight, though; the only right-handed he had to face was switch-hitter Chipper Jones.


Frieri was unavailable tonight. Scott Downs came in to relieve Greinke in the 8th to get LH Fielder out. then came back out for the 9th and got LH Boesch out. but then was replaced by Garrett Richards who got RH Young and RH Peralta for the save.
I find that interesting. it's not like Downs was in any trouble, not giving up any hits or walks.

If you had to pick Balfour or Cishek for the rest of the season who would it be?

Aceves suspended 3 games for conduct detrimental to the team. Safe to assume Bailey takes over from here down the stretch?

Aceves not happy.
Red Sox suspended RHP Alfredo Aceves three games for conduct detrimental to the team.
Aceves apparently got into a heated exchange with Boston manager Bobby Valentine after Friday night's game against the Royals, in which Andrew Bailey was given his first save opportunity of the season and converted. Aceves will begin serving the three-game punishment on Saturday night. He has a 4.60 ERA, a 1.24 WHIP and 25 saves in 32 chances this year.

I don't know this, but I wonder if Jeremy Affeldt wont be getting any/many save opportunities anymore.
he pitched today in a game the Giants were losing.
he started the 9th on the 23rd giving up a hit and a walk only to be replaced by Lopez and then Romo.

Ditto for Casilla. Really, anyone could be getting a goose egg or multiple saves each given week.
