Barraclough

Doesnt help that our bullpen depth right now is nonexistent.  Guys like Graves, Meyer, and Hernandez taking up roster spots.   Wittgren being in AAA makes no sense to me.

 

Wow, yikes.  This could be the worst bullpen in team history of Claw, Steck, and Conley are somehow dealt.

Sick of seeing this guy blow wins, especially with two outs. CHANGE THE CLOSER MATTINGLY!!! You should have pulled him when there were no outs and two on!

 

If this team only had a decent closer!!

 

I just don't understand why Mattingly keeps him in when it's obvious he has  no stuff! Six blown saves and several more where he nearly blew 3-4 run leads. The guy does not have a 'closer mentality'. Get another closer Mattingly!!!!

I’m in belief that Mattingly has short term memory and forgets that this guy has been pitching awful recently and just keeps him in there.

Don’t blame Mattingly, blame Jeter. He forgot to sell high on a reliever. Just like Loria, his friend who gave him the franchise.

For as good as Barraclough was the first three months, he’s been horrible since July 1. Ruined his once elite ERA. 

 

A bigger issue is that over the last two years he’s totally lost his fastball. He barely hits 94 compared to 96-98 when he came up. 

 

Maybe we’ll sell high on a reliever next time.

Hi, please don't be one of those people that ONLY posts during negative situations. That gets old, fast. Thanks.

 

Where else does one vent their frustrations? Barraclough is a negative... sorry, but it's true. He's blown 4 of the last six saves. It's frustrating to see the team play well and hold a lead, only to have the same guy keep blowing it.

Yes, but his velo has been down all season - he got away with that by having a very good change-up for the first three months. Not sure what's happened there, seemed to me like he's not really using it at all.

Sure, but don't ONLY post negative, is my point. You are correct, he's been god awful of late, but I'd prefer to see a little balance in one's posts. That's all. ? Have some positive ones as well, maybe join us in the game threads every so often.
