“I hope so,” Baker said. “We don’t know yet. We’ve got to preserve Arthur. Everybody wants me to leave him. We’ve got to use some of other guys or else we won’t have Arthur at all. I hate taking Arthur out of those games. Everybody’s got to do their job in order to preserve everyone else.”
I would say being down 4-1 late in a game where Chris Carpenter is pitching pretty well qualifies as one time you might think about preserving him. But that's just my opinion.
