  1. Aroldis Chapman…I will call him “The Devastator”.

  2. Think it might be time to move Wilhelmsen to the “green.”

  3. No mention of Ryan Cook’s own meltdown??

  4. In Cook’s defense, he gave up three shallow singles after coming in to try and clean up the usually-solid Sean Doolittle’s mess, so it wasn’t really a meltdown (at least nowhere near the level of Johnson’s).

    Cook is a guy I’ve implored selling high on in prior BRs. His peripherals (mostly BB/HBP rates) are really just not good and if fantasy owners can find someone to bite on his sub-2 ERA, I’d do it quickly.

  5. Isn’t it a stretch to think the Halos would remove Frieri with 70Ks in 40 innings? That’s an insane 15.76 per 9 innings! 2.7 BBs per nine as well.

  6. I’m pretty sure they only went with Cruz over Lopez because they had to bring in Cruz to face McCutchen in the 8th. That’s what the Astros’ beat guy seems to be saying, at least.

  7. Why the switch from Burton to Perkins this time?

  8. After having slightly more save opps than Perkins at the end of June and early July, Burton’s usage indicates that Gardenhire is using him slightly earlier on average than Perkins over the past few weeks (even appearing in the 7th inning a couple days ago — although that was a loss, so it’s tough to tell whether it was just getting Burton some work.

    Perkins is also the better pitcher, although Eno Sarris posted a closer series a few weeks ago that showed LHRP as closers are disproportionate to LHRP in general b/c of platoon splits.

    Either way, the team isn’t generating too many save opportunities to make either an elite option, even if they were the main guy. Unfortunately, it still is a little like rolling a loaded dice — right now it looks like Perkins has a bit more weight but that could also change quickly (hence why the Minny pen remains red)

  9. I think the next report should have Marmol in the green. The job is clearly his, he’s just not a master of control but the Cubs don’t care because they’re garbage anyways.
