I wonder why the Texas Rangers management waits until the starting pitcher is five or six runs behind before calling on the bullpen. It appears they don’t want to use the bullpen until the seventh inning.

We have several relief pitchers. They’re big boys and well paid. Use them!

Each one should be able to pitch two days in a row. Don’t worry about tomorrow’s game or one next week. Just win the game being played today.
