Yup. But apparently the players are little kids. Not adults. And again, last night i mentioned job descriptions. Why is ramos a 7th inning guy? When the 6th rolled around, you should have had him pitch or even dunn. Not brad fucking penny. I dont know. Tired of repeating myself.
I think your best pitcher should come into the toughest situations. 3 run lead in the ninth? No need for the "best" reliever to come in. 3 straight lefties coming up in the ninth inning of a one run game? Go to the lefty, not the closer. I don't like the idea of bullpen roles either, but baseball is a business and closers make a lot more money than middle relievers. The MLBPA would frown strongly upon any team who legitimately did away with the closer role, even though it would most likely be the best move for the team as a whole.
