    Pretty much all non elite relievers have good and bad years, unfortunately because of his age this might be the end for Grilli.

    If he was 5 years younger then no doubt someone would pick him up when he's inevitably released, and maybe he then comes back stronger next year.

    There was a reason Atlanta got rid of him.

    I pin this loss on Gibbons. The Blue Jays only needed a sac fly to score the 4th run from Darwin Barney, who is one of the better hitters on the team. The suicide squeeze is normally used with weak hitting pitchers in the NL, not with reliable hitters like Barney.

    Yeah that's my point - he was good for them the year before, then wasn't in 2016. He was pretty good for us once we picked him up, and now isn't having a good year.

    Just like most relievers he has ups and downs. But because of his age he might not get another chance.

    Absolutly agree, barney makes top contact, so you dont go suicide !!! Baseball 101.... i guess our manager has only gone through baseball for dummies... maybe next year he will graduate to baseball 101

    I think they'll wait for Martin to return, give him a month with him and see if there is any progress. Odds are he's done. I mean we can't have someone in a tie ball game with a >5 bb/9 and a 3.2 hr/9 and expect good things.
