I wouldn't worry about just yet. But a couple more outings like the last one and he might be gone from the set-up role. O'Day can always control the 8th inning.
I was surprised that Buck didn't allow Strop to start the Ninth today. The ole "back on the horse" thing. If he could set them down one, two, three; it would have done wonders for his confidence.
