That may be true, but Sanchez just had Tommy John surgery, so that is at least 2 year away (one year to recover and another year to return to form).

Actually, you're referring to Kevin Whelan but with this latest set back maybe Sanchez's future is in the bullpen.

Bruney has closed before and can be dominating. See no reason why he would not get a shot if the unthinkable happens.

Kevin Whelan or Bruney are the most likely options.

It's early, it's cold, and Mo hasn't had many opps to pitch. Give it time, he'll come around.

Rivera had a poor start last April too.
Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey
