Very true. When Lincoln came in for Johnny, I admittedly was not happy. He did the job, however, as well as the rest of the bullpen. Cordero did try to make it interesting, but he got it done. It will be of utmost importance for the bullpen to be solid. Our young starters throw a lot of pitches and, even if they are "on", don't get late into games. It's going to be critical for Masset, Weathers and co. to get it to Burton and Cordero.
It was the struggling Astros, but I find it very encouraging that our bullpen outperformed theirs.
