Hanrahan with a meltdown against Baltimore. How long is his leash? Bailey has looked sharp so far.

I think Bailey warrants a prospective look at this point.

Disagree.
There was a long rain delay.. plus two pitches he threw were strikes not called.
One crossed a good 10% of the plate and Salty needs a course on how to frame a pitch.

He wont lose his job over this game.

I think he meant for fantasy owners, not for the Red Sox. There are plenty leagues deep enough to warrant a speculative Bailey add.

Strikes out the side with a Mauer double in between. Double was on a 98 mph fastball up and away that Mauer took opposite field. Kid has some sick stuff though.

And locked it down. Mauer sliced a double but he owned the other guys.

He has a change up that wars are fought over. Him and Carter Capps are my biggest RP man crushes at the moment.

A change is still a long way off, but Bailey was brought in to be the closer before he got hurt. Obviously he can do the job if Hanrahan has a few more bad outings in a row. A longshot at this point, but it puts Bailey up there with some of the best MRs in terms of ownability.

After this display of dominance I think Hollands got one more blow up and that's it. If Herrera pitches like this all season and Holland doesn't knock off the walks then he's done. Herrera looks like he wants to OWN that role.
