New York Yankees – So it turns out that baseball is totally rigged, and last night, David Robertson owners were the victims. Robertson’s role in “Yeah Jeets!: The Musical” was to ensure that Derek Jeter got a final at-bat, which meant a brutal blown save that included two home runs. In all seriousness, the Yankee brass should definitely mull the Robertson vs. Dellin Betances question in the offseason. Robertson has been pretty-good-but-not-great all year, while Betances has had one of the best seasons for a reliever of all time.
Hierarchy remains: Robertson | Betances | Warren.
Detroit Tigers – If you’re in a deep league with the holds category coming down to the wire, you might want to snag Anibal Sanchez. Sanchez recently returned from the disabled list, and Brad Ausmus has vowed that he could be used at any point in the game.
Hierarchy remains: Nathan | Soria | Chamberlain.
VULTURE SAVE WATCH
1. Rafael Soriano, Washington Nationals – Just a hunch, but Drew Storen and Tyler Clippard both pitched yesterday, and the Nats may want to give them extra rest heading into the postseason.
