April 5 … 12:34
Comment From Oskar
Do you think Perez will hold on to the closing job? And if not when will Pestano be called upon?
No, and soon!
Comment From Drew
You’ll end up 100% wrong on C.Perez. His velocity yesterday was better than it was at any point last year (which he pitched hurt). Indians are nowhere near considering a move. Pestano is fool’s gold.
Perez’ velocity was not down yesterday, we have an article about that on RG. I just don’t think he’s any good. Among the top 30 in saves last year, he had a walk rate, strikeout rate, and ground-ball rate ranked between 25th-30th. He’s one of the worst closers in the league.

As I predicted on April 5, you were 100% wrong on Chris Perez. Just sayin.
He’s finally got his peripherals up to average!
[And if you got em all right, you’d be the first person ever, so that would be a pretty awesome thing.]
A note bout swinging a bat by the knob: There was a big deal about this made when Griffey fractured his Hamate bone. From what I’ve read there is a correlation between that injury and how a player holds the bat. Stupid worthless hamate bone…
Got an OF spot that I need to open up for Mike Trout. Looking to move Matt Joyce for an SP. Standard 5 x 5. What tier of pitcher would that net me? Josh Johnson, Wainwright? Is it worth the deal?
I’d take either of those guys for Joyce, Waino first.
Crap, Superntural is down for next week and I don’t have a backup catcher, Jennings is eating up the lone DL spot. H2H points weekly pitching is valued higher a bit.
WHO to drop?
Bats: Cuddyer/Willingham/Jennings/Moustakas/Mike Aviles
Leaning towards Norris or Sale atm, picked up Bauer late in the draft and would hate to drop em’. Would love some feedback.
Gotta be Bauer. If you like him, try to pair Sale and Peavy for someone like Waino. then pick him back up. You’re right to be nervous about Sale in H2H, but don’t drop him. Why don’t you leave Santana in there for a week if you love Bauer. Won’t kill you.
10 team h2h league was offered teixiera for strasburg and dunn. Should I accept it? My other 1b are Chris Davis, Hosmer, Freeman, and Morse. My other SPs are Grienke, Lee, and Beachy. I would be grateful for any advice. Thx.
