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.
