"Janssen, Oliver, and Frasor? Farrell uses them that way and they have been the 3 best, or close to it. "
that works great on paper, but if the starters don't make it to at least the 6th and occasionally the 7th, that's not enough and that's what has hurt them. those 3 cant pitch every day and no one else is shut down. not having Carlos to fill in the blanks has hurt them. not having Perez makes it worse.
Lol if those are your three best relievers you are in trouble.
Jays basically have one excellent Reliever Jansenn, one great role reliever in Oliver, and then one middle of the road reliever in Frasor
Going down the stretch you need 5 guys in the bullpen who are above average.
Dyson has potentiol, Cordero is not coming back from this, he is done. I would also bring up Carreno and let him be a reliever. Then have Richmond and Chavez as your long guys. THats the pen you go with if you dont acquire another reliever
IF AA can sign JC Romero, i woujld replace Chavez with hiim
someone wont be enough. lol they need a couple of guys to really step out. I know V has said he's in better shape this year, but being in better shape doesn't necessarily translate to a lot more innings pitched. I think he'll get dead arm if they abuse him again this year. Alvarez is most likely on a innings count as well. cecil has a few lucky starts, but hangs way too many pitches center cut to ever be effective.
they need at least 2 starters. that way V can go back to the pen and then one of the guys you think can step up can maybe help them get to the ninth.
hard to see them not having a really rough time without AA bringing in more arms.
