Jenks- 2-0 1.96 ERA 10/12 SV/SVO 5/12 BB/SO

Linebrink- 0-0 1.47 ERA 5/11 BB/SO

Dotel- 2-2 3.06 ERA 9/27 BB/SO

Logan- 1-1 3.00 ERA 3/13 BB/SO

Thornton- 0-0 3.60 ERA 5/19 BB/SO

Masset- 0-0 4.26 ERA 11/20 BB/SO

Wassermann- 0-1 27.00 2/1 BB/SO


With exception to Wassermann the bullpen has been great. I realize it's early, but I'm very optimistic about the bullpen this year. Especially Dotel and Linebrink setting up Jenks, the last couple of times out Dotel has gotten some big outs with inherited runners on base. Linebrink has just been nails so far. Hopefully they can keep this up.

Yeah, KW did a great job adding Dotel and Linebrink and dropping the other pitchers into less important roles. Nice to have a Thornton who doesn't even see much work in the pen and it gives Logan a chance to grow into a more important role down the road with less stress now.

Today's game may need some of those lesser arms/talents because Bobby has pitched in 4 straight and I'm pretty sure even Ozzie's not crazy to use him 5 days in a row. Linebrink is on 3 stright too.

Dotel should be relatively fresh though and Thornton too.

Hope we can put up some runs and make some of those questions moot...

Linebrink and Dotel have really come on lately, especially Dotel. He struck Winn out yesterday on three straight fastballs I think. Linebrink is possibly one of the better set-up men in baseball and Dotel is a decent 7th inning reliever. Kenny has really made this bullpen very good.

What if this bullpen turns into the 2007 bullpen? You and the TC will be held accountable you know.

We have a great 7-8-9. Our starters should be good enough to get us to the dotel/linebrink/jenks combo. If Thornton and Logan are just decent, I will be thrilled.
