Cishek- I know he is the current closer, bit how many saves can be expected?
Rosenthal


What is this, a 5 team league? :-b

Cishek
Bailey
Herrera
Rosenthal

No I play in a couple leagues. I'm trying to get a general feel of their value. I own Cishek in 2 leagues leagues and not very happy about it.

Boggs blows the save. Last call on Rosenthal?

is Rosenthal for sure the next in line to Boggs? or could maybe Edward Mujica get into the conversation/get the job?

Dunno. Rosenthal is presumed to be next in line, but he gave up 2 on a Braun homer today.

Yeah it's hard to give the boot to a guy for giving up one run when the one you want to replace him with gave up 2 runs one inning earlier. It's a messy situation, but it'll still be Boggs.

Also, Herrera brought on in the 9th in a tie game and pitched a perfect inning. Got the win when the Royals scored in the bottom of the 9th. This is typically a situation where the closer will be used since there can be no extra inning save opportunities in a home game.
