24 things we're just as confident in as a Jeurys Familia save in 2018

24 things we're just as confident in as a Jeurys Familia save in 2018

by Tim Reilly May 24, 2018 0 Comments

Jeurys Familia has four blown saves in 17 chances this season. In other words, he’s failed to shut the door roughly 25 percent of the time. That’s simply unacceptable.

At this point, I have no confidence whatsoever when Familia enters a game, which puts him in the company of countless closers from the past that fans watched with one eye open. 

Here is a list of things I have more confidence in happening than Familia converting a save:

  1. Lucy not pulling the football away from Charlie Brown
  1. Skip Bayless making a reasonable point
  1. Proving that Earth is flat
  1. Spotting Big Foot
  1. Tom Brady aging
  1. Finding the Big Bang Theory funny
  1. Omar Minaya returning to the Mets. Wait, what?!?
  1. A statue of Tom Seaver being built at Citi Field
  1. Fully understanding Lost
  1. Phil Mickelson winning a U.S. Open
  1. Watching just one episode of The Office
  1. Stephen A. Smith speaking at a normal volume
  1. Steven Matz making 30 starts in a season
  1. Facebook not stealing my identity
  1. Getting clarity on The Sopranos finale
  1. America uniting around a singular presidential candidate
  1. Weathermen accurately predicting a snowstorm
  1. Mike Francesa retiring
  1. Understanding bitcoin
  1. Grasping how the healthcare system works
  1. The Jets winning the Super Bowl
  1. Charles Oakley night at MSG
  1. Sean Hannity, Rachel Maddow, Rush Limbaugh, and Don Lemon having dinner together
  1. The Nationals winning a playoff series.
