Was the bullpen shorthanded?  Not a fan of bringing in Wotherspoon down 2-0.  I know our chances aren't great but they went from not great to not there.

Bullpen will always be shorthanded.

More yada yada from "Hyder":

“We brought Spoony here to give us some length and depth in the bullpen,” Hyde said. “Excited for him. Really cool moment to watch him walk in the clubhouse, his first day in the big leagues. Credit goes to him for everything he did to be here today.

“Tough to lose Pedro. A great kid and I hope that things work out for him. He’s going to be put on waivers for a couple of days. And I’m hoping somehow we can get him back. I think he’s got some upside. Didn’t really get a fair shake here honestly during the start of the season. Just the way the games played out. I hope sometime he can come back here.”

Maybe not if they go to a traditional fifth starter.  Means. 

Don't like the two-inning opener unless you can piggy-back a real starter, who can go five innings.  That's not Jimmy Yacs.

Kind of an unfair headline for Wotherspoon, no?  I mean he wasn't great, but the headline makes it sound like he gave up the lead.  

Seems that way to me.    Who knows if Mancini would have hit a 3-run homer if the score had been closer?    We probably would have seen Giles instead of Hudson in the 9th.

Close, then not. That's what I said. Giving up three is not good.

Jumping Wotherspoon over several names on the 40-man with major league experience is the first Elias move that has not worked out and may have cost a game.

Not all of his moves will work to plan of course, but coming off a down year in AAA, it still was a little surprising that he was called up over Ynoa, Phillips and Ramirez or even Rogers for that matter.
