    Giles. If we're gonna blow a save I want it to come from the guy with the best stuff. He's ready for another shot. The most logical next choice would be Gregorson but I like Devo a lot. Bulldog out there

    Giles should get the first crack for sure.

    I don't want it to be Giles because I want to easy him back into the roll and he has still been shaky... But basically we don't have a choice

    In what way has he been shaky recently? He hasn't given up a run since mid-June and was arguably the best pitcher in baseball in July with a 0.00 ERA and 0.58 WHIP, not to mention 18 strikeouts in less than 9 innings.

    2.15 ERA since April with more than 12 K/9.

    Shaky enough to not allow a run in July

    Voted Giles bit I think Feliz would be a decent option as well.

    So, not only do we have a short bench, but also have a short bullpen?

    Would love to see Gomez to the DL and Fister to the paternity list to give us a better 25 man roster.

    Giles. It's a shame he wasn't able to claim that role in April.

    Fister was pretty good again yesterday. If he's able, they will keep him in his regular spot. I would much rather see Musgrove take a start from Fiers.
