Also Lindstrom gave up 3+ runs and only got one out came in in a non save sit but was down by 1 he's been pitching good lately but who would be next? Nunez?

K-Rod collapsed outside the clubhouse from the pain and was seen tearing up as a stretcher was called for. He has taken on a hefty workload in New York this season and it's obviously affecting him physically. We'll keep you updated as more information streams in. J.J. Putz picked up his second save Saturday night and is likely to fill in should there be a save situation over the next few days.

Bobby Parnell is the 3rd option. But it would be Putz, they said on the broadcast yesterday he could pitch if he had to and I'm sure he won't want to pass on some save opps.

Izzy is coming out for the 9th....in a 10-3 game. But I think it would have been Izzy anyway since he started warming up when the score was 4-3.

He had a bad year last year. If that's enough to throw out 8 solid years in a row, then yes.

Also Parnells been hitting 100mph on his fastball if he can mix in a decent slider..good pickup if putz neck blows out..Putz will get first chance at saves

A's Closer Update:

Top 6th -- Brad Ziegler is warming up in bullpen, with A's leading 4-1, and bases loaded.

EDITED TO ADD: Ziegler now in the game in the 7th inning to pitch, with the A's leading 5-1.

Agreed. This is the first time we've seen Soriano have to bail Gonzo out of trouble, and it definitely clouds the situation. Knowing Bobby Cox, though, I think Gonzo will have to really fall apart for the current dynamic to change. I'm far less certain about this than I was before game time, though. :)

It will take several more poor outings for Gonzo to lose the job. He has been good lately and just pitched yesterday, against 3 of the toughest RH'ers in the Blue Jays line-up if you remember. He was clearly struggling today and was already at 24 pitches. Soriano was well rested, which is why he came in.
