I've been running Gregg out as my 3rd closer and now the team decides they want to see what Strop can do for them. He of the 4.75 ERA and .5 walks per IP. Anyway I've got to make a decision to replace him with one of my only 2 moves left for the playoffs or try fly with only Holland and Melancon.
I am down 0-2 on saves thru yesterday. He's running Soriano, Reed, and Perez out there. Assuming I get by this week, the team I'd most likely play for the Championship is running with Janssen, Mujica, Benoit, and Farquhar.
The only available options or prospects are:
Strop - with 3 vs ATL. 3 vs PIT, 3 @STL
Hawkins - with 3@ PHI, 3 @ CIN, 4 vs MIL
Fields - with 3 @ CLE, 3 @ TEX, 3 vs NYY
Doolittle - 3 vs MIN, 3 @ LAA, 3 @SEA (of course no one has said their demoting Balfour at this point)
So given that do I pull the trigger on one of these or do I save my 2 moves for a potential bat, SP, or injury replacement player and wing it with the 2 I have?
in need of Greywisdom.....
