Not the inexperienced ones. Well, Busenitz. But the problem was the 3 relative veterans that pitched prior to Rogers got no one out. At what point does Moltor realize that those guys aren't getting the job done and that maybe he should try one of the other 5 guys down there?

I actually don't hold it against Molitor that Pressley, Boshers et al didn't get the job done. He has precious few good options.

There's tons I dislike about Molitor, but the bullpen construction is on Falvine.

Yeah. We talked about how the players reacted, but I am pretty sure Molitor opposed the Kintzler trade too.

But don't we now have a closer who (as of yesterday) had a 50-50 close probability?Yes, he closed a 3 run lead Friday.
