The Bullpen Burnout is Coming…


Twenty three games into the season.  What’s the bullpen usage?


Scott Rice – 14 games.  On pace for 99.

Scott Atchison, Latroy Hawkins, Brandon Lyon – 11 games.  On pace for 77.

Bobby Parnell – 9 games.  On pace for 63


Even guys sent down were being burned. 

Josh Edgin – 11 games (77 pace – yeah, I know – he’s not up)

Greg Burke – 7 games (49 pace – see above)


Rice is going to be toast at this pace and his solid performance thusfar in the pen will be gone.  Parnell – we’ll see.  Hawkins is the only other guy with an ERA under 4 and he’s the only guy on the team older than me.  


The pen won’t keep up at this pace.
