Might want to request a trade to Cleveland.

In 2013 vs Indians(incl today) 17.1 IP 8.31 ERA(but 3 BB and 19 K- go figure); vs the rest of MLB 124.2 IP 2.17 ERA

Or to any team- last 10 starts coming into today 1-8 2.84 ERA.

Same guy I almost got Iwakuma for in the offseason for janssen. He offered Iwakuma for the two closers. I went with the K rate of Sale.

iwakuma can't be kept. Sale could be for $34, which is high, but could be reasonable with inflation. Verlander went $41, Weaver $39, Felix $37, CC $35 (Price was kept $34). It was a factor in my consideration. Janssen can't be kept either. Nathan is $18 and can be. $18 was the highest priced closer this year despite my second foray into the market in a decade.

You should have taken Iwakuma!

Just kidding.

Maybe.

Yes, but with me having 3 closers and one other team with 3 for a while (Valverde being the 3rd), there's a lot of points that can be gained by getting two closers as opposed to 1 the rest of the way. He's 22 saves behind 6th, so it's possible to make it the whole way up the ladder to the middle of the league. And, he's first in ERA/Ratio and probably won't give ground with Nathan and Janssen the way they're pitching. He also has Weaver and Iwakuma so he's not devoid of top starters. And, Gibson just came up for him, so he felt starter rich.

Does the other guy realize half the season has been played?

I've got a deal in principle to trade Nathan and Janssen for Sale and Crow. Crow won't last on my roster, but a deal has to balance. I'm first in saves by 24 and still have Frieri to ride the rest of the season, with a goal of keeping all 12 points. Sale hasn't gotten the wins, but otherwise he's as good as a 5x5 starter's going to be. The team getting the two closers has 1 save. Just waiting for all three to get through Sunday's games without a hiccup to finalize the deal.

Slyke, I saw Sutcliffe(I think) say that in last Sunday night's ESPN game.

Well, looks like he did right the ship (thankfully).

I have heard several ex-players in the booth call his delivery a cross between Randy Johnson and John Candelaria. Wow, that is great company... and a great comparison.

The Candy Man was my favorite pitcher growing up, and left-handed batters dreaded facing him. To this day, Keith Hernandez still says he was the toughest pitcher he ever faced.

Showed some immaturity in nailing Brantley with the first pitch after giving up a grand slam to Reynolds. You could tell Ventura was not pleased and yanked him after the next batter. Hope he learns from this...it's a long season.
