Any chance it may be Rauch who gets the job? Of course he has been getting some garbage time, but 2 of the last 3 have been in close games. One was right after Qualls blew the save. It was tied. The other was in that 1-0 loss to the Dodgers. Those are pressure situations. Pena has really been bad over the last month, and Rauch does have some experience at the job...
