Baker never should have brought him in for the Arroyo game. Big mistake that made no sense.
Tonight with the two lefties coming up, it was either him or Chapaman. And I am not one of those guys who feels you bring in Chapman in every game. You have to look at the big picture.
The real answer is that he's still far from 100%, and he should have been put on the DL until he was ready.
