I agree, and not just because of tonight.
Weathers is best in the 6th and 7th innings. He can come in, throw strikes and hope that hitters get themselves out. He has been successful so far due to luck. That will even out as the season progresses, as we are starting to see.
Masset has shown he has the stuff to be a set up guy, to get that tough out when needed. He can get that K or pop up when he has to. If not Cordero, I want Masset facing the teams best hitters with the game on the line, not Weathers.
