    Opener?

    Anyone else surprised Bell hasnít utilized the ďopenerĒ yet? With Mahle and other possible starter types heading to the bullpen, is that something to do?

    Could that save Lorenzenís career?

    Just some thoughts so I donít have to think about last nightís game.
    I have a love-hate relationship with Albert Pujols. Mostly hate.

    Both Disco and Mahle have splits where it would make sense to use a lefty opener for them if either is in the rotation next year.

    Totally agree. I suggested they use Lorenzen as an opener every early in the year. You also get to use his bat once.
