Betances as a reliever in two seasons has in season 1 broke Mariano's franchise strikeout record for a reliever and in season 2 is leading the majors in strikeouts for a reliever. People will complain about anything.

betances has been awesome in both roles this season. no complaints. i thought he did look a bit out of sync last night but that's mostly because he really hasn't seen regular action the last 3 weeks. and i'll take an slightly "out of sync" betances any day. the question that hasn't been asked is who closes when miller comes back.

Nah, just DFA him.  You will never get anything of value back for a reliever who throws in the high 90s.

Mo blew a save every now and again.  Heck, he even had bad weeks where he blew a couple.

If you knew how to read and comprehend you would certainly understand I was not comparing him to MO. Just stating that I didnt see MO or any other reliver for that matter Miller, etc. go through all of the various movement and quirkiness that Betances goes through. He is obviously quite uncomfortable out there and it shows and hitters pick up on this.




Actually, I did read and comprehend your last sentence where you DIRECTLY compared him to Mo.


Different closers work differently, and many of them have unusual tics, mannerisms and routines. Al Hrbowsky, to pick one extreme case.




The Mad Hungarian!  Good reference!

Since June 10th, when Miller went on the DL, Betances had the one 4-run blowup for a loss in a non-save situation against the Phillies. Otherwise, he's pitched 5 games, and is 5 for 5 in save conversions. In those 5 games, he's pitched 5 2/3 innings, allowed 2 hits, 0 runs, 4 BB and has struck out 8, which is pretty much in line with what he did before.



What did you say to have your comment adjusted by the mods?

Here's some more numbers for you.


He' 7-8 in save situations. 8.0 IP, 5 Hits 2 runs, 13 K's, 3 BB


Yeah that's not quite as awesome as his 1.13 ERA but it's pretty GD good and right on par with his 14.5 K/9


Not sure what your point is. It's his second season as a pro and he's filling his idol's role that he grew up watching and doding it better than 99% of the other closers in the league. You will complain about anything.



You too... Were you a bad boy?
