    Young relievers

    We seem to have a number of young relievers on the parent club and in AAA. Should we see what they can do? Our experienced relievers dont seem to be doing the job.

    Our leads seem to be given up by elderly relivers. At some point we will need to start going to a youth movement-like yesterday.

    What makes you think the young guys are necessarily any better than the vets? Nobody in this pen is getting the job done right now.

    You weren't on the board much then. There were threads calling for the guy to be cut. Maybe I'm missing some sarcasm?

    Blind faith. I would like to believe the younger relievers would perform better than over -the -hill relievers.
