I really am not liking this.
I mean, after some great door-shutting by Perez (except for the two blown saves), why would TLR go and break a kid's confidence like that?
I would much rather have Carp come back in some capacity in the bullpen, before eventually working back into the rotation to be ready for next year. This way, you have a healthy, ready Carpenter and a young, confident, and hopefully dominant closer.
Who's your closer when Carpenter comes back?
