Re: Daugherty defends Narron's use of Pen
One thing that is lost in all of this is WHY Weathers and Courmier (and to a certain extent Coffey too) were unavailable. It's because, since the start of the Dodgers series, the starters have had a hard time going late into ball games. To a certain extent, these guys (including Aaron and Bronson) played a roll in the Sunday meltdown.
I was personally worried to see "The Magic Man" in there in the 8th to begin with, considering how the BP had been playing with fire for 2 straight innings. However, I understand why JN saw a need to rest arms. I'd also like to see what happens if Majewski were to go a week or so without pitching at all...
