DateQuestionAnswer
2010-07-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think there's a chance Torre uses any other reliever than Broxton or Kuo the rest of the season?
(Dingers Blog from Los Angeles)
Man, watching the Dodger bullpen has become quite an ordeal lately, as Torre has burned through yet another set of high quality arms who were too successful for their own good - Ramon Troncoso, please join Corey Wade in the Scott Proctor Memorial Lounge, and if you see Ronald Belisario, tell him he's needed there too. Oh, and Mr. Kuo, your third Tommy John surgery is scheduled. Same side, correct? (Jay Jaffe)
