1. Does he go back to closer?

2. Who goes down? Miller, Gardner or Messenger?

--------------

1. Ya know, i really dont think it matters. I'm just glad we're chosing between two guys that are pitching well instead of Fat julio and anyone else.

2. I hesitated to put Messenger on there, but we never see him it seems like. It surprised me that Gardner would go in tonight, and not Mess, after Gardner struggled in 1+ IP of work last night.. so, is there no confidence at all in Messenger? Personally, I'd like to see Miller stay and Gardner go down.

1. I hope he goes right back to the closing role. Granted Gregg has done a good job in his absence, Owens is better 9th inning material.

2. Gotta be Gardner going down.

I think Gregg can be a fine closer.. I just think his ability to go a few innings when needed makes him more valuable in that role.. but, i do like his makeup and think he could do a fine job. Has looked great in his limited save opp.



No matter what, when Owens is back, a group of Owens, Lindstrom, Tank, Gregg and Pinto with Miller and Mess in the back is a damn good looking bullpen. They have to step up with the rotation being banged up.

gregg is one of the few relief pitchers we have that has experience , his stuff while good may not compare to Ownes and Lindstrom but he knows how to pitch , we should close let owens and lindstrom set up for a year

It'll be between Miller and Gardner to be sent down. But Miller's thrown well, but Gardner threw real well today.
