Lindstrom came in for a non-save situation, then gave up a run and created a save situation. It could be as simple as wanting to get someone a save. Nunez and Lindstrom are both righties, so it wasn't a L/R matchup sub.

Last week was the time to drop Ziegler.


I wouldn't drop him if you don't have to. He is unlikely going to be the full time closer, but Bailey could mess things up for himself. Also, the plan might be to get Zeigler some saves. If you desperately need the roster spot, dump him I guess. If you can hold out a little while, then hold out.


I agree. Bailey did blow some games, and give up 4 or 6 earned runs in his last few appearances.

Choate is a situational lefty. IMO, Maddon would not use him against a righty. I think he only comes in to get lefties and if a righty comes up he would get pulled.

well, you and the crippler can stay as ignorant as you want. but i would prefer to wait until someone officially loses his job before i dump him for some speculative free agent.

about 99% of the pitchers in this league haven't blown any saves and haven't given up 4 or 6 earned runs in their last few appearances. so the fact that player X is part of the 99% of pitchers who haven't, doesn't really prove anything.

Hmmm. Well, I guess I misinterpreted that. Oh well. Sorry Rohan. You can add my post to the list of posts that make some people hate this thread.

Manager Fredi Gonzalez said he removed Lindstrom on Saturday because he had thrown 26 pitches and wanted to make sure he was available to pitch again on Sunday, if necessary.

Gonzalez said he has no intention of changing closers.

Morrow didnt look so great in 1 inning tonight, even if he pitches decent how likely is it that he will take the job from Aardsma who is pretty solid right now?

And how much longer will the Angels hang with Fuentes? :-°
