DateQuestionAnswer
2012-05-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Best bullpen in baseball?
(Takahashi from Salt Lake)
A year ago, remember how bad the Rangers' bullpen was? It was their big weakness and it was going to bring them down and it would never survive a hot summer in Arlington. And now they have converted their closer to a starter and they still have a) Koji Uehara working mop-up innings! This is incredible to me. Isn't Koji Uehara one of the, oh, 20 best relievers in baseball? Maybe 15? And he is their sixth- or seventh man. He came in to the ninth inning down by six the other day. That's just his role! 2) They have Mark Lowe, who would be the easy answer to the Astros' closer question above if he were on the Astros, who hasn't pitched a game in even average leverage all year. The highest ALi he has this year is 0.49, which is ahead by five runs in the seventh inning. 3) They have the best bullpen in baseball. It's probably close, but I really want to be definitive, so I'm going to add "and it's not even close." (Sam Miller)
2011-04-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Why was it that Mark Lowe was viewed as the potential replacement if Feliz went to the rotation?
(pfe1223 from Dallas)
Because he has the necessary stuff to pitch in that role. He wouldn't have been my first choice because his command isnt sharp, but the stuff is legit. (Jason Parks)
2011-04-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Why is Mark Lowe a member of the Rangers at this point? Is he still hurt?
(jhardman from Rangerland, NC)
What did Mark Lowe do to Rangers fans? If he had his shit together he wouldn't have been a throw-in to the Lee deal. He's going to be up and down. That's why he's a 7/8 type and not a guy who is a hot commodity in the game. He has good stuff. He never had sharp command. (Jason Parks)
