Kenley Jansen with the save for the Dodgers last night.
this is what rotoworld had to say.
Kenley Jansen got one out in the ninth to earn his second save of the year Tuesday against the Nationals.
Manager Don Mattingly said Brandon League was the closer Monday, but he made it clear tonight that Jansen is the guy he has faith in. It was Jansen who warming up in both the eighth and ninth innings with Clayton Kershaw fatiguing, and when Jansen got the call with two outs in the ninth, he fanned Tyler Moore on four pitches. Whether this means it's now Jansen's job is up for debate. One thing is for sure: he should be owned in all formats.
this is what razzball had to say.
The other day Don Mattingly said something like this, “When your closer can’t close, but you need games closed and you have a closer in name and a non-closer closer, who’s your closer? The guy who’s closing games? I don’t know. I’m seriously asking. I would think it’s the guy you call closer, but we call Brandon League the closer and he can’t close, so the closer must the guy we don’t call closer but can close games named, Kenley Jansen. Warmer… Warmer… No, now you’re getting colder. Go back the other way.” Kenley Jansen got the save. YAY!…But…BOO!…It was on the tail end of an 8 2/3 IP, 11 Ks, 6 baserunners stunning performance by Clayton Kershaw, so it wasn’t a stereotypical save. I would’ve preferred to see a standard “closer enters to start the 9th inning” save before telling people to drop League. I’d hold both for now, but a new era (not the hats) may be upon us.
