Oakland A’s — We told you that we would move Lou Trivino to the top of the Oakland hierarchy if he converted the team’s next save chance, and we’re keeping our word after he collected his ninth save of the year on Tuesday.

Updated hierarchy: *Trivino | Diekman | Petit.
* = closer-by-committee

Oakland A’s — Consider us inspired. A second save in two days for Jake Diekman, this one following a Lou Trivino eighth, means it’s time to swap the two heads of the Oakland save monster — likely guaranteeing a Trivino renaissance.

Updated hierarchy: *Diekman | Trivino | Petit.
* = closer-by-committee

A truly amazing factoid from the Monkey.

Oakland A’s — For the first time since 2019, the Athletics lost a game they led after six innings, and Lou Trivino was to blame. Trivino has pitched well this year, however, and won’t see the hot seat after one bad outing.

Hierarchy remains: Trivino | Diekman | Petit.

Thank you, Syd Thrift, you've saved me from the window ledge. Diekman was indeed seen as the handcuff for Rosenthal and went for $7 in the American Dreams League. That was far too pricey for an insurance policy, especially since I had beiieved the confident assessments from Will Carroll and others that Rosenthal would be back soon.

I think Diekman would have been the handcuff back in those old days of March.

Embarrassed to admit that after buying Rosenthal for $15, I stupidly let Trevino go for the grand price of $1. And in the American Dreams League, we have 11 pitching slots, so that isn't the excuse.

In hindsight, if you paid for Rosenthal you obviously should have handcuffed Trivino.

In the auction (or draft)?

Depends on the number of pitcher slots. If your league has only nine active pitchers, covering your big bets with small bets is not a good idea.

Different story in the reserve rounds, but -- in 4x4 leagues anyway -- it's unlikely Trivino made it that far.  

From the Monkey:

Oakland A’s — With everyone rested, the Athletics went Petit in the 7th, Diekman in the 8th, and Trivino in the 9th. Since Bob Melvin tapped Trivino as a closing option, he has two saves, which is two more than anyone else on the team. He was also warming up for a potential save situation recently, only to see the A’s score enough runs to prevent a save opportunity. While Diekman hasn’t been bad in the early going, it’s clear that Melvin sees Trivino as his top option in the 9th inning, and that’s enough to remove the asterisk.

Hierarchy remains: Trivino | Diekman | Petit.
