Likely hasn't pitched much lately. Managers do that to get the guy work and keep him sharp.

But you do lose that factor in extra innings to close a game if the team goes ahead.

You don't manage thinking "what if"

You manage based on who you think gives you the best chance to win. I guarantee you every manager in the MLB doesn't care how many saves his closer gets...as long as his team gets the win.

Yup

I noticed that closers tend to pitch more shtty in a non save than in a save.

Not their normal situation. Put a SP in a closers role and see how he does.

Questions surrounding Sveum pitching to Bruce with runners on second and third.

Brewers starter Kyle Lohse cruising along in his start against the Padres. then suddenly he injures his pinkie on his non-throwing arm.

UPDATE: dislocated pinkie.

Lohse is a very good pitcher. Extremely underrated. But this kinda s**t ALWAYS happens to him.

Actually much better when under the care of the Cardinals.

Dave Duncan knew how to do wonders. Now its Derek Lilliquist-who I remember was a pitching prospect for the Braves who didn't live up to expectations.

What a recovery, especially after going through an up and down '12 season.
