I would have definitely pulled him after the Zimmerman AB. Robin has used the bullpen a lot lately and I have to think he was trying to coax another inning or two out of Jake since this is Game 1 of a 10 game trip. However, Jake was leaving a lot of pitches up and his velocity dipped to 89mph that inning. I think those first couple innings really gassed Peavy early. Also, I realize this is a bit of arm chair managing but I thought when the game was 6-2, that would have been a perfect time to turn to Hector Santiago to gobble up some innings and save the bullpen.
