Joe Smith is the new Scot Shields


Recommended Posts

You can't bring in guys spontaneously as conditions change in a game rather rapidly.  You have to be able to get them warmed up properly, and that involves guessing in what manner the game situation will change.  Tonight Salas was being warmed, the situation deteriorated for Weaver suddenly, so Mike couldn't suddenly sit down Salas and throw in Smith.  That's why Scioscia stresses set roles and innings for his relievers.

 

We have the 8th and 9th inning guys.  We just can't find the reliable guys for innings six and seven.  We have too many bed poopers for those roles.

Joe Smith has been impressive.  The thing I remember about Shields is his reliability.  When he came in he would throw strikes and get people out.  Then all of a sudden one day, he could no longer throw strikes and that was it.

Dude just dropped off a cliff.  I guess it was bound to happen, but it was still surprising.
