He set up tonight... although they were up like 5 runs when he came in he still gave up one. Anyone know?

I haven't heard anything about him losing his job. It was a non save situation, so it doesn't really matter when he pitches, he wouldn't have gotten a save anyway.

G'day. (yes I am Australian)
Rotoworld posted this last night.

Rocky Biddle was brought into tonight's game with a five-run lead to start the ninth, but he had to be pulled after giving up a homer and a walk.
Biddle has just completely lost it. Expect Luis Ayala to get whatever save opps the Expos generate over the rest of the season.

Rotoworld now say:
Manager Frank Robinson said Saturday that Rocky Biddle is still his closer.
''Maybe he's trying a little too hard. Is he still my closer? Yes. Will he close a 3-2 game? I don't know,'' Robinson said. Luis Ayala still might be the better bet for saves from here on in.

The "I don't know" part bugs me. :-?
