Why is it so invariable that when the pitcher spot is due up, late in the game, that pitcher will have a bad inning?

Close games don't fit Rivera's "skill set"!

Jones is the perfect match for Rivera too.  Hittable 90 mph fastball, AJ will be all over it

There were no relievers used in yesterday's game.  Everybody is fresh!

Why use Rivera???

that's bad luck.  I still don't want to see Rivera come back out and pitch another inning, not with a 1 run lead, no way.

Sadly, Rivera did a good job, two grounders - if the bat doesn't act like a heat seeking missle for Zim's head - he's out of that inning with no damage ... ok guys ... MORE RUNS!

Traber has been getting Ortiz luck this game.  I'm going to just go find one of Dave B's rants from early season, to cut and paste instead of typing my own rant.

7th inning? Who? Micah is still out, right? ... 8th Rauch, 9th Chad .. 7th, who?

Rivera should always be your last option.  Frankly, this team isn't good enough to consistently play in winnable games.  There will be plenty of chances, in unwinnable games, for Rivera to pitch!

Bowie is out?  How did I miss that?  What's wrong?

I hope Bowie is back, but haven't heard anything.  I originally thought he was only supposed to be out day-to-day, it's been more than a week.

Lat strain, suppose to be day to day - but he's been out for a while
