Yeah @rafibomb he has been amazing. To me, he's the clear cut choice for our closer going forward. He's got two swing and miss pitches and great command of both of them. 

I like Middleton, but he's not as good IMO. 

Was worried that he would be a pitcher that batters would just sit fastball due to a lack of secondary pitches but I gotta say that slider looks legit...

No way he’s taking Middleton’s job as closer just yet imo. Kid looks good but let’s wait and see. 

Middleton isn't guaranteed anything and he just blew a save in which would have given us the first game in the series. 

Keynan is only the closer because Blake Parker shit the bed and we needed someone decent in the 9th.

Anderson looks the part of a shut down closer. 99 MPH fastball, wipeout slider.

I beg to differ

The guy has good stuff but I would wait on the closer part until around June when we get a better glimpse of him over a two month period. Just too soon right now for a sure thing. Remember Perci didn't get the closer job until Lee Smith got injured in 96, but Perci had a full season under his belt and proved himself to be the guy to replace Smith and the rest is history.

I'm just saying it's quick to put someone as a closer after only 4 games. If Alvarez and Anderson continue they should be set up and closer, respectively. Dump Parker somewhere else for minor league talent and get Krol up here as a left handed specialist to face certain batters. That way Alvarez can spend time focusing on setting up in the 8th. Krol is dealing in SLC right now as well.

He could be our equivalent of Scot  Shields, and be a lock 8th inning bridge to our closer.

don't forget about Bedrock, 4 straight scoreless appearance. velo getting back to 94-96 constant. if he can recover that 2016 form in the next week or two, he's the closer for me. Middleton in the 8th and johnson/ Anderson for the 7th.

I thought Scioscia hates young players?

 

I literally cannot remember Scioscia ever using a rookie the way he has used Justin Anderson.

Most of us had no damn clue who he was until he showed up with a slim lead in Houston and fires 99 for his first pitch. I mean, I can only ever remember him easing guys in. To throw him in the highest leverage situations we have is something way out of character.
