Again I'll say it

If the bullpen has to pitch 5 innings per game it won't matter how good it could be. The good guys will get tired and the bad guys will pitch too often.

They'll be bad tired? Heck, they're bad right now fresh. At this point only three of them (Clippard, Bruney and Capps) even look like they belong on a Major League roster.

Three more than appeared last year

That's three more than last year, bdrube.

It's not really three more than last year but it IS two more than they started with.

Like I said the difference is that they (maybe) found their three so games they should win will be locked down. It's all those other games that'll get away from them, but it's still an improvement.

I'm not too worried about our pen barring the inevitable Clippard injury.

Clippard is our best reliever (2nd year in a row) and he can work multiple innings. Walker/Batista/J-Berg(Gary Matthews JR is good for what ails a pitcher) will get the call when we're behind. And Burnett gets spot appearances against lefties!

I'm assuming English goes down on Thursday but I like that Riggleman is giving him chances.

The only flaws are when Clippard pitched the 5/6th the day before and they need Bergy/Walker to get to the 8th with a lead!

I'd guess that Stammen/Mock/Storen might supplant Batista/Walker/Bergy in the pen later this year.

This means starting up a business or company can be done much cheaper. These are just some of the benefits that come from your choice to use an online fax service in your home or office. However, it was not until the 1980s that the technology in faxes became sufficient and the cost was practical for widespread use among businesses. A big advantage is you do not need any telephone line dedicated for your fax transmissions, and you save cost by doing away with the usual fax machine and the running costs that such a set-up requires. VoIP fax software is among the most innovative products currently offered to the users. Online you will need to fill out a simple form just to get started!
