So I have a proposition.

Stanek is incredible as an Opener. Sucks as a reliever. Happened in Tampa Bay, too.

What if it has to do with how he warms up? As an Opener he's got up to 20, 25, 30 minutes to do so if needed.

Perhaps they need to just get him throwing a full inning or two before bringing him in.

You wouldn't think it's this difficult because he's still just pitching no matter the inning but you're probably right.

It's pretty much the only difference. When he's Opening, he faces the other team's best hitters. And is amazing. He can come out of the bullpen, face three pitchers, and be awful.
