    Default Seriously... F*ck Veras!!!

    I don't know where this guy got the idea he could pitch. It seems like every time he's in a low-pressure situation, he somehow manages to make it critical and find a way to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Someone send this guy to the Morrocan Leagues!

    I don't understand the hate for Veras. He's been thrown into a ton of high leverage situations this year. Fangraphs has a good stat for relievers that's WPA-based called Shutdowns and Meltdowns. Veras has 24 shutdowns vs. 7 meltdowns. A guy like Daniel Bard, who has filled a similar role for the Red Sox has 23 and 6. I'm not really sure what you're expecting from an 8th inning guy. Not everyone has the Braves bullpen where you can just throw 3 or 4 ridiculous shutdown relievers out there.

    Just part of the general swirling down the commode.

    Three wins against the Cubbies might get us on track.

    Did you know Veras has made 54 appearances already? That's almost half their games. I think overall, he's done a pretty good job for what he is. He hasn't been as sharp the last few appearances, but for the most part, he's gotten the job done. I thought Watson would have been a better call to face Ibanez, but let's face it, that team is loaded!

    Agreed... As of late, he's come into the game with some unenviable situations. In addition, we've been running the gauntlet with some pretty **** good opponents recently... It is what it is.
