First, we should get more innings from our SPs so the bullpen workload might go down. Second, I believe Tommy Hunter will become a dominant short man who can go two innings if necessary. Third, we will have some quality relief pieces waiting at AAA in case they're needed.
I totally agree. Plus add the fact we won't be carrying a guy we can hardly pitch (Gregg)....I see Ayala and the 7th man doing a great job of not having to use the top 5 relievers so much in situations where they have no buisness having to pitch. Strop and O'Day pitched too many times in slop situations. It may have hurt Strop. He put in alot of innings going into late June and July.
