2017-05-08 20:00:00 (link to chat)Is Sam Dyson rosterable in any sort of format at this point?
(Jeff from SoCal)
I was going to say that's a hard no, but then I thought that might be a bit harsh, so I pulled up his player page as a refresher. Oof, the hardest of no's. (Mark Barry)
2017-05-03 20:00:00 (link to chat)To continue the closer theme. Do you think Sam Dyson grabs the closer job back this year? It's not like Bush or Jeffress is pitching great.
(Trumbo from Baltimore)
Hey, Trumbo. Get that slugging percentage up, OK? I think there's a chance that Dyson gets it back, yes. I do like that Leclerc fellow, too. A lot of this depends on how the Rangers season goes. Do they punt, when do they punt, how bad dos it get and how soon? I would say it's a fluid closer situation, yes. It could be, you know, months, until Dyson gets the job back. So, patience?
