It IS rocket science, insofar as it deals with probability. It is certainly not as complicated
as rocket science, though.
Yes, knowing Turnbow pitched 5 of the last 7 days increases the probability (or at least our confidence in that probablility) that he is in fact the
closer. But, after Bottalico was brought in, it naturally(?) lowers our confidence (at least a little) that maybe Turnbow is not the main guy and Milwaukee is going to a cbc. But, as klvrdude pointed out, the information provided by Scooter1027, that is not
in the box score, was what Turnbow owners needed to know so that they could be reassured that the high probability of Turnbow remaining the main closer was in fact the case.
