I know, I hate when my closer's in in a non save situation. The risk/reward just isn't there. I was holding my breath yesterday when Philly put Wagner in just to get him some work. I picked up 2 points in my points league and was risking losing about 12-13.
oh thats so annoying, I just took first place in my league last night thanks to Beckett and others and immediately gave it back today thanks to Borowski. Completely agree with above, why oh why do you put a closer in a game in a non-save situation. Makes me angry.
You guys do realize that a save is an essentially meaningless statistic to a manager trying to win a baseball game, right? Borowski came in in a meaningless situation to work on a pitch. Doesn't really hurt the Cubs to lose 13-2 instead of 10-2, and Borowski got some work.
Sucks if he's on your fantasy roster, but it happens, and you certainly can't criticize Dusty for it.
