2018 FANTASY BASEBALL CLOSING TIME: JACOB BARNES MELTS DOWN DURING SAVE CHANCE

After endless speculation about how would inherit the precious closer role on the Milwaukee Brewers after All-Star Corey Knebel was lost for two months with a serious hamstring injury, it looks like we may be back to square one here after Jacob Barnes blew the save chance Saturday in very ugly fashion in the team's loss to the Chicago Cubs.  Barnes was a complete mess as he gave up 3 hits, 2 walks, and 3 earned run to blow it and thus likely remove him from consideration the next time a chance shows up.  Attention now has to turn to Matt Albers and back to Josh Hader in that order; with Dan Jennings also on the periphery.  Clearly replacing Knebel is going to be a big issue that manager Craig Counsell needs to short out quickly.
