Should have happened weeks ago. Mattingly only has himself to blame.

No debate needed here. It would be Peralta. Not even close.

He should have let Kenley come back out in the 9th IMO.

14th May he brought Jansen in for the last out after Kershaw had thrown 132 pitches. League was available but Mattingly knew he had to get the win for Kershaw. That was the moment the change should have been made permanently. Since then League has blown two Kershaw gems and the Dodgers have continued to stink and League more than most.

Mattingly didn't have the balls to make the change 4 weeks ago and it's bitten him in the arse three times since.

Rockies Betancourt out past DL expiration date.....maybe until end of June/early July....

[i]Per the Denver Post:

Left-hander Rex Brothers is going to remain the Rockies’ closer for a while. Though Rafael Betancourt, on the disabled list with a strained right groin, is eligible to be reinstated June 16, he acknowledged Friday that he will be out longer than that, possibly not returning until the end of June.[/i]

Too bad we can't get Rex some save opportunities....
