    Did you see that pitch he struck him out on ? It was a hanging curve up in the zone plus he couldn't throw a strike, Morrison helped him out. Chapman and Betances are both head cases can't throw strikes to save their lives. If Robertson isn't made closer after this game I highly question this teams logic.

    Absolutely! Huge win.

    I'd rather us use DRob and Green the way Cleveland used Andrew Miller last postseason. They've been our best 2 and most consistent relievers. Bring them in in the 5th, 6th, 7th whatever if it's a big spot. Don't need a definite 9th inning closer imo.
    Up by 1 in the 6th, opposing team has the tying and go ahead runs in scoring position and getting out of it is more of a "save" than getting the final 3 outs in the 9th when we have a 2 or 3 run lead. That's just how I feel. I'm sure others disagree and that's ok too. We all went the same result which is a W. Whatever produces that, I'm happy with.

    I agree. 'Closer' role is outdated and saves are not always an indication of a pitchers ability. Coming in, in the 6th inning with bases loaded and 1 out, up 1.. In my opinion is much more high leverage than up to 1 with the bottom of the line up coming up in the 9th.

    Agree. New age in BB. Many of the younger managers are using best arm in most highly leveraged situ, regardless of inning. Joe needs to catch up.
