Ah, the stretch run and the second to last Holds post of the year. If your not streaming RP at this point to your advantage, I don’t know what else to tell you but to give me your password, and just get ready for Sunday fundays. It’s not Sunday is it? Because I can’t talk about it with it around, because it slowly consumes me, then beats me, steals all my money, and makes me feel like that time at the water park. Sorry, sidetracked on terrible memories. So Drew Storen has popped up and taken the reigns until Soriano figures out why seven ate nine. I have heard that people are questioning why Tyler Clippard isn’t in there trying to win one for the skipper. It’s easy, but has multiple levels to it. First, you don’t take your best reliever out of the key spot, and that’s setting up and clinching the game for you. Rhis is documented by Clippard dominating in appearances with the lead over the last 30 days. The second is– Storen, who will be awfully expensive next year, while pitching effective, is basically being showcased and used to keep Rafael Soriano from getting his guaranteed 15 million doll hairs next year. You heard me: 15 million. Which becomes guaranteed at 120 games finished, he currentlly sits at 104. The moon landing, JFK, and keeping Rafi Soriano from getting duckets. Conspiracy theories or truth, all I can do is type it… hold on, Oliver Stone is on the phone. Stick around for some snippets of relief pitching lore and a flashy chart made from unicorn tears…
- Rock La Familia, aka Jeurys, aka the dirty rooster, it’s funny because when you Google his nickname, it is inabsentia like Bueller, Bueller…Bueller. Jeurys is pacing the holds world the past 14 days with 5. The Mets are going to have a tough time next year with the abundance of power arms at the tailend of their pen. That’s a good thing, the bad they are still the Mets.
- Dudes with glasses, just get my goat, if I was allowed pets in my apartment that is. Brett Cecil has kinda been up and then down this year, still managing 21 for the year, 2 this period and 1 save. What jumps out to me is the 13 plus K rate. He is definitely shining out when Casey is running with ice cream in his boots. You like ice cream doc?
- So dumb question, when do the Wade Davis for Cy Young chants start? That’s a serious question.
