I like the idea of the "7th-inning closer" but it would be revolutionary.
Multi inning relievers tend to be setup men these days, Belise type guys
Not too many closers tossing multi innings these days, hence why there are 12 guys not 9 in the BP
Is it right?
Probably not wholly and it's probably not all wrong considering the cost if players and the perilous nature of a pitchers job
