Two questions when Owens comes back


Recommended Posts

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.

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.
