IMO BobSteve is a perfect candidate to become a three inning reliever specialist. He's been a starter and knows how to handle going multiple innings.
This team has been horrible at keeping the pressure on opposing pitchers. Big first inning then 4 or 5 innings 3 up and 3 down, scatter in a hit here and there while not getting anything going.
