Rollie Fingers

SDS

Is it just me or is Rollie getting rocked now? He used to be pretty shut down for me but lately he’s getting nuked.

Is Dibble the only usable reliever at this point?

SDS

Well it only makes sense since everyone has him and everyone uses him. The more you see a pitcher, the easier it gets.

Definitely agree, was just curious if others were noticing this more now.

Still have success with Fingers when I mix pitches. As far as a closer goes, though, I split between Fingers/Chapman/Gagne depending on situation....

I only got him recently and have no more than a dozen innings with him but I haven't done well with him. I don't think over given up any HRs but the Ks have been low and the hits and runs have been high.

Although in general I've had success with a lot of relievers in RS. Dibble, Nen, Chapman, and Britton have been dominant while Wagner, Ottavino and Eckersley have been good. Obviously a bad outing or two can ruin a relievers stats so don't take these examples as gospel but in general most of my relievers have been better than my starters

SDS

His signature last year was my one of my two best pitchers along with Lee Smith.

Rollie does seem less effective this year.

SDS

The more card is seen, the less effective he usually becomes. Or it could just be that you have had a series of match ups with players who are better than you had been playing.

SDS

The guy has been insane for me. 2-0 with 25 saves and a 0.19 ERA. He also has 70+ K’s and not one walk.
