Depends if you think Scioscia can get away from the traditional closer mentality. A lot of managers just like the easy option.
Fuentes looked pretty limp-wristed this afternoon. A couple more outings like that and there could be some Fuentes hysteria on here.
Wouldn't get worried about this at all. Last night he should've been out of the game with no runs twice. But because he let up a swinging bunt that he and Napoli couldn't communicate on, and Gary Matthews Jr. is playing out the string and not playing hard, he blew the save. Not a big deal, he looked fine last night.
After he got unlucky (Suzuki's hit was hilarious) he threw a couple of delicious "hit me" pitches that could have gone a lot further.
And actually Cust's out before that was just mistimed or that would have been a HR.
