The Monkey (if you couldn't tell):

September 9, 2021

New York Yankees — Aroldis Chapman was booed off the mound on Wednesday after a low-leverage outing that included a home run, two walks, and a wild pitch. Chapman started the season with no earned runs in 18 appearances and he had a 0.39 ERA (1 ER, 23 IP) going into the game on June 10. Over the last three months, however, he boasts a 7.23 ERA, three blown saves, 24 walks, and seven homers allowed. You can’t trust him and neither should Aaron Boone. Chad Green seems likeliest to get the next save chance, and we’re sticking an asterisk back on this bullpen.

Updated hierarchy: *Chapman | Green | Peralta.
* = closer-by-committee

Yanks pull it out in the ninth in Oakland to move their winning streak to 12 (longest since 1961). Chapman finally gets a save during the streak.

Red Sox fans who are suffering with Matt Barnes would take some comfort here if the Yankee options weren't quite so excellent.

Closer Monkey:

New York Yankees – Tasked with protecting a two-run lead in the ninth inning against Atlanta, Aroldis Chapman retired two of the first two hitters he faced. Two walks and an infield single derailed his inning, however, and Wandy Peralta won a fierce battle with Freddie Freeman to leave the bases loaded and earn the save. We’ll keep an eye on how much of a leash Aaron Boone gives Chapman going forward and whether Peralta, Jonathan Loaisiga or Chad Green become Boone’s preferred ninth-inning options. Zack Britton’s name isn’t on that list, as surgery is now a possibility after he landed on the IL with an elbow strain.

Hierarchy remains: Chapman | Loaisiga | Green.

Did you think Kiki would come through? I did.

New York Yankees — Aroldis Chapman worked around a walk and a two-out double to pitch a scoreless inning and record his 18th save of the season. After a brutal three-game stretch where Chapman allowed nine earned runs, he is starting to pitch better and has only allowed one earned run over his last six appearances. He has also recorded the last two saves for the Yankees after Chad Green picked up the save on July 7th.  


Hierarchy remains: Chapman | Green | Loiasiga.

No one's perfect.

At the end of the season it would be interesting to see what percentage of the time the "ghost runners" scored as opposed to when a batter reached 2nd with 0 outs in the 1st 9 innings.

Great comment by Michael Kay in the tenth inning yesterday.

"And so Aroldis Chapman gives up his first run of the year. The run is unearned. He didn't put that runner on base. Someone with a great imagination did."
