Re: Daugherty defends Narron's use of Pen
Hopefully Franklin and Mercker give Jerry some fresh arms to make him look a bit smarter.
I'm not expecting much from Franklin, but if we could get even a mediocre long man that can chew up innings when the starter leaves early, that should help keep Cormier, Weathers and the other guys more rested.
Replacing Standbridge will help too. The guy's control is so bad, you can only bring him in with bases empty and then you have to have someone ready to bail him out. That puts a strain on the pen as well.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
