And simply put, if the game is within 3 runs, you will (AND SHOULD...you like what I did there?) see a combo of K-Rod and Ax.

See that is the type of rigid thinking that is dangerous. Krod and Ax should be used in the most high leverage situations period.

What if your boy Greinke is at 75 pitches after 7 in a 3-1 game. WILL we still see a combo of Krod and Ax?

Look i dont think its a horrible decision to go to Krod and Ax. I just dont think its the right one and I don't like the way it has been used by Ron.
I think Roenicke has used him pretty well so far. Why do we pick up K-Rod if we aren't going to use him in every available situation when he's a rent-a-player and happens to be pretty darn good? He's not Kam Loe.

You don't use him in every situation he is available because then at some point in time he isn't going to be available.

Like I said. I don't think its a terrible situation to use him in. I just think you let Shaun start the inning and if anyone gets on base you bring him in. No need to burn him with Marcum cruising when who knows when we are going to need him next.

Joined late, but I see a bit of debate about pulling Marcum? I can't defend this, other than my feel for the games but i would have pulled Marcum too, but kept Narvy in the other night.

I meant use him in every available hold/save situation. He may go 4 games without pitching if they stick to that philosophy.

You are also helping keep our starting pitchers a little fresher too. Once August starts winding down these starters (most of which haven't missed a start) are going to be worked pretty hard.

(Great play Weeks)

We don't know what the long term plan is. They may ride the k-rod/axford duo for a couple of weeks. Rest everyone else until August. At that point maybe he starts letting the starters go deeper. Like I said if they keep pitching like this it is hard not to save everyone else at the expense of two guys. It is a good problem to have to say the least because it means they are all pitching well.
