I think the more relievers you throw out there, the better chance you bring in one who doesn't have it that night. But hey, Lindstrom bailed them out.
I put this on Coop. Robin still being a new manager would probably defer to Coop if he said leave Crain in for the 8th. Maybe they're trying to limit Crain's innings for the long haul.
