Just beat me to it...Krod only needed 2 pitches for the 1 out save.

5 out save for Garrett Richards. Seems like everybody was available, so maybe Scioscia's making a change.

wow, saw that they used pretty much the entire bullpen last night for only one or two outs apiece. Didn't realize he threw that many.

Rotoworld already chiming in that Henderson's injury "does not look good" and that Milwaukee will probably go with a closer-by-comitee approach. Though I would think K-rod would get the new job.

Axford has looked better in his last couple outings, right? Could he be given a shot again?

Not sure. Looks like his last two outings were good, so that would have been my guess, but their first reaction was to go to K-Rod. I saw on another site where someone thought Kintzler might have a shot to move into the closer role. Anyone buying Kintzler?
