    He is probably the most likely candidate based upon performance. But we'll see when Marshall comes back.

    They've used the bullpen a lot lately, not just last night.

    It's not a case of "saving" them for next game, most of them should not be pitching tonight, period.

You probably paced yourself, right? Because most people can't sprint the whole mile. Baseball is like a mile, or rather a marathon. You can't sprint the whole way. Sometimes you have to decrease your odds in one game to give yourself a chance to win more games in the whole.

    If you use your best arms every night, they'll wear out and you'll lose a lot more later in the year. You can't pitch every game like it's the 7th of a World Series.
    I am in disagreement that the win % given up by leaving Parra in tonight is more than offset by the win % gained tomorrow.

    The pinch hitting on this team is exceptional.
