2018 FANTASY BASEBALL CLOSING TIME: DON MATTINGLY REFUSES TO ENDORSE KYLE BARRACLOUGH SUNDAY

Saying that incumbent closer Brad Ziegler was not 100 percent healthy on Saturday night, Miami Marlins manager Don Mattingly claimed early Sunday that was the impetus in his decision to use Kyle Barraclough to close out the team's win over the Colorado Rockies.  Having been a top setup man for the last few years, Barraclough punched out 3 batters in the ninth inning to pick up the clean save and thus open up diaglogue about whether or not he was now the guy.  Mattingly then proceeded to throw cold water on the development with his point about Ziegler's health and so we are back to square one here at least for now.  It is really utterly ridiculous that Mattingly would even entertain the idea of going back to the pathetic Ziegler considering how he has toted around an ERA north of 7.00 all season and also watching how dominant Barraclough was on Saturday but that seems to be what is taking place with this situation.  Be that as it may, add Barraclough everywhere because this charade can't go on forever.
