Obscure MR info

Postby AKhomebrewer » Thu Aug 12, 2004 2:08 am

A small public service for those in holds leagues, extra-deep leagues or those looking for relievers to avoid topping an innings-pitched limit.

Wedge has made another shuffle to the scariest pen in the majors, apparently shifting Bob Howry to the set-up role formerly held by Rafael Betancourt, David Riske, et al.
He also said Howry would get save opps on days Wickman can't go.

Howry got another hold tonight (gave up hit and BB but no runs), and now has 27 K's in 26 innings with a sub-2.00 ERA and just three walks. And 4 holds in the past week.

I wouldn't drop anyone good, but if you've got a roster spot ...

Yeah I noticed Howry getting the holds the past 2 games...... i see a win by a couple rusn and I'm praying for a Riske hold, and on consecutive days Howry gets it :-[

I think I'm the only person who watched the highlights of the Indians game and was pissed cuz they didn't show who pitched the 8th inning in the game summary :-b
