Perfect Thread for me today; Screw you haters ;-7 . I have had Hanrahan (sic) in my lineup for the first two weeks, and he sucked it up. Of course he picks up two saves in TWO DAYS. FML...

PS When is Marmol going to be the Cubs closer, although I should thank sweet Lou because I picked him up off of waivers...

from the other closer thread re BJ Ryan

Hopefully it's just a strain and he'll be back within 2-3 weeks


--- yeah no kidding, I dropped Downs for Coffey just the other day so I'm hoping whoever in my league picks Downs up on waivers tonight doesn't get the benefit for more than a couple weeks.

nice thread ;-D

Ah don't be so melodramatic. When people post a "why isn't Papelbon in the game" question when he's obviously pitched 4 days in a row, yeah someone is going to say something.
What's the purpose of posting something like that?
No one thinks of themselves as an "expert"....it's just basic stuff.

Ok....bring on the 80 people to scream at me who don't know how to check a pitchers game log. :-o

It's not that people don't know how to check a pitchers game log -- it's that that is one of the major purposes of the closer thread in general. If you check previous years' renditions, you'll find it all over the place, and the thread has always operated nicely, which is also why you don't see many members who are long tenured here at the Cafe reacting the same way as you and some others in the thread itself. Not trying to beef up those with longer tenure here, or put down some of the greener members by any means here, so please don't think that, but it's a noticeable trend in the thread. The bottom line is the thread is there to help people, period. As long as people aren't asking questions we have specific other forums for them (i.e. Draft, Trade...), then it's nobody's place to question the validity or importance of said question. If you don't feel it's 'worthy' then simply don't answer it. Somebody else either will or they won't, but there's no reason to comment on it unless you're trying to be helpful. That's the long and the short of it. There's really no need for any discussion beyond that. It's not anyone's job to judge questions or comments. The entire purpose of the thread is to help players of all levels and experiences.
