Ayala got the save, because he came in in the 8th when the Expos only had a 1 run lead. Biddle was warming in the bullpen, but the Expos scored 3 more runs in the bottom of the 8th making it a nonsave situation for Biddle, so Ayala just finished the game.

That said, if I had Biddle right now I'd probably be looking to talk up his high save total and trade him. He has an ERA up around 8.00 since the all star break and has probably been hurting you more than helping unless you're in a points league. He's been so awful lately that it wouldn't surprise me if he does lose his job, like Julio and Baez already have. I would sell high on him right now.

Yes, both KIm and Izzy should be vastly superior options to Biddle. If you can get either straight up for Biddle, jump all over it, since Biddle has more saves only because Kim was starting for half the year and Izzy was injured half the year.

They both carry some risk, with Izzy at some risk of getting reinjured, and the remote possibility that Kim either loses his job to Williamson or moves back to the rotation. Out of the two, Izzy is probably less risky and will certainly do less damage to your ratios than Biddle. If you can't get Izzy, still get Kim for Biddle if you can.
