I think Gully has handled Haynes beautifully, and that Boone and Gully have more often than not pulled the plug on the questionables in the exact perfect spot in the 5+IP range to save them from worse damage. However, I've wondered about this thread from day #1. Haynes is less than 2 years removed from 12 wins with the hapless Brewers, why should an additional win earn anyone Sainthood? He actually had almost the exact same ERA last year that he has coming into today's game. Same hit, walk, K ratios, IPs per start. Almost no change.
What exactly is the difference that merits Sainthood?
