Rauch, a RHer was in the game when the PHer was announced. Collins made his move after Bruce was brought in the game. I'm sure Dusty knew he would bring in Byrdak, but for obvious reasons, liked that matchup for Jay anyhow. Turns out Bruce won the matchup again, nearly hit another long one, but did his job regardless.
