The question is why Bailey got the chance to close.
I thought it was clear Ziegler wasn't the closer when he was brought in during the 7th of a close game which Oakland was winning last week. Russ Springer blew up in the 8th, but it was clear they were lining up Bailey for the 9th to close. He ended up having to pitch two innings and allowing one run while K'ing 4. I thought it's been clear Bailey will be closing most/all the games (unless he implodes) as of last week. I even posted about it in this thread, but I guess sometimes things get lost in here.
