Tony LaRussa doesn't know the first thing about managing a bullpen. I feel sorry for all of you that rely on Cards relief pitchers not named Izzy.
Bernie Miklasz [a local St. Louis sports writer] said on tv the other day that the Cards would like for Esteban Yan to Co-Close with Izzy when he came back to ease Izzy in after his injury.
So that leaves Yan, Eldred, and Fassero to get the saves chances. And I'm sure Tony will use all three, rather then have one settled into a role.
Good times to be a Cards fan!
