Wade Davis scares me.....

I know he's 18/18 on save attempts this year, but he's way too wild for my peace of mind. It seems like one out of every three appearances he's all over the place. Last night was atrocious. Couldn't throw a decent breaking ball to save his life.

It's just frustrating that it seems like over the past decade or so the Cubs have only had erratic, unpredictable closers. From Marmol to Gregg to Rondon to Chapman and now Davis. It would just be nice if for once the Cubs had a closer who didn't throw it unnecessarily hard all the time and got himself into jams due to stupid mistakes.

Don't get me wrong: I think Davis is one of the best closers in the game. He's just not exactly a guy I'd trust in the ninth inning of Game 7 of the World Series (a la Aroldis Chapman). Am I the only one who feels this way?

I'm not sure what is going on with him. I think he is running out of gas. It probably was not good that he made the All-Star team. He needed the rest

More scariness from Davis today. The most deceptive 19/19 saves stat line ever. Yes, he's good, but, yes, he's also a little unpredictable. Maybe I'm expecting too much. To be fair, elite closers are hard to come by in this era. It's one of the few elements of MLB that's probably gotten worse in this current baseball generation. I mean, Mariano Rivera only threw one pitch, and he was the king of closers for, like, forever.

Lol. You're right. He's definitely no Carlos Marmol, but he's way too unpredictable to be considered a a truly elite closer to me. Remember Carlos Marmol made an All-Star Game once, too. Just saying...

Don't be a downer...Davis has not blown a save THE ENTIRE SEASON. That's elite in my eyes...
