I am chafed that I didn't claim him after the trade.

Closer Monkey:

September 16, 2021

Oakland A’s — Oakland tried its best to blow a seven-run lead over the last three innings Wednesday night, but Andrew Chafin ultimately put the Royals away with a four-out save. Sergio Romo has struggled in his last two outings, and we expect Chafin to be Oakland’s top save option over the last few weeks of the season.

Updated hierarchy: *Chafin | Romo | Diekman.
* = closer-by-committee

More saves in the 2nd half? 

Scoreboard:  Bender 2, Chafin 1, Tyler Rogers 1 in pitching duel.

And so it begins.

VULTURE SAVE WATCH
Today:
1. Chad Green (NYY) — Aroldis Chapman has pitched in three of four.
2. Andrew Chafin (CHC) — Craig Kimbrel has gone in two straight, and could also leave the Cubs at any moment.

The Monkey gives Bender a +Buy, but I think I'd go with Kimbrel on grounds that he's almost a sure bet to be traded.

I think Rogers wins in a pitching duel, but if you need a *bold* bet to earn a larger gain the saves category, Bender is the only one of the trio that might runaway from the group.

A head-scratcher, which I'll turn over to the Monkey.

Chicago Cubs – The Cubs haven’t been shy about wanting to trade Craig Kimbrel, with the Astros, Athletics and, more recently, the Red Sox named as possible landing places. Wherever Kimbrel ends up, he will likely remain as a closer so his value won’t change much. Andrew Chafin is most likely to benefit from a Kimbrel trade, but Ryan Tepera and Rex Brothers are also candidates to take over the Cubs job assuming that none of them are traded themselves. With all 3 likely to become free agents after the season, the closers job may go to whoever is left.

BUY: Andrew Chafin.

Who gets more saves the second half:  Chafin, Rogers (SF) or Bender?

New hierarchy from the Monkey:

Chicago Cubs
– Alec Mills picked up his first save of the season, spelling Craig
Kimbrel, who got the night off. Andrew Chafin was dynamite in the set-up
role, striking out all four batters he faced, and Brandon Workman will
likely continue to get late-inning work, so we’ll monitor where Mills
fits in going forward.

Hierarchy remains: Kimbrel | Chafin | Workman.

Closer Monkey:

Chicago Cubs — Brandon Workman has had an impressive spring in his attempted return from a terrible 2020, and David Ross is singing his praises. If Workman has truly recaptured his spectacular 2019 form, he’ll be the Cubs’ best setup option by far.

Updated hierarchy: Kimbrel | Workman | Chafin.
