In response to ampoule's comment:
It's definitely not a knock on Bradley, but his youth and inexperience showed a little today in the field. The guy really over extended his attempt in the ninth inning. Obviously, it should have played as a single to prevent the runner from going to second.
We lucked out on the play...Bailey got the next guy out. But with a little seasoning, I think he'll be fine.
I think a lot of us got wrapped up in the hype and I'm certainly guilty of that.
I pray that Uehara isn't over used. The guy has been nothing short of sensational so far.
Great posts amp, as usual.
I'm with you on Uehara. We need to pace this guy. It's nice that some of our starters are going deeper this year, but with Aceves in the rotation, and Breslow out, it might be tough to keep him out of close games.
I'm wondering if bringing Webtser up and returning Aceves to the pen might be the best solution to any extended Lackey injury.
Thank you for the kind words.
Actually, I was thinking the EXACT thing with Webster/Aceves but didn't want to hog up the thread with another post.
Getting Breslow back, I think is imperative. It would take some of the pressure off using Uehara. And, if I'm not mistaken, doesn't Breslow have relatively good numbers against righties?
Contrary to what Aceves might think, I think he's proven without a shadow of a doubt that he's best in long/middle relief. Of course, if Wilson and Mortensen continue to be effective, and with a healthy Breslow, Aceves may be expendible.
