Falconsfan567 Posted July 16, 2011 Author Share Posted July 16, 2011 Well, he is technically right about there being more to a pitcher than ERA, but I think he got a little carried away with labeling Linebrink the way he did considering what we ask him to do and how much we are (or aren't) paying him.But I have no faith whatsoever when I see Linebrink in the bullpen or in the game because there is always the chance that he could give up a ton of runs. You need more than 3 solid options out of the pen and when Linebrink is your 4th best option in the pen you have the problem we have with Venters and Kimbrel pitching WAY to many games. Speaking of pitching why did Fredi refuse to use Scott Proctor tonight instead of Linebrink? Is he waiting to use Proctor in another extra innings game? If so he needs to be knocked in the head with a bat! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
