A short bullpen

Let's get this up before this afternoon's game: This figures to be a tough game for Ron Gardenhire to manage his bullpen.

Glen Perkins and Matt Capps each worked the previous two days. Joe Nathan pitched Wednesday, and I don't think he's worked consecutive days. Kevin Slowey had a six-inning stint three days ago. I would think Gardy would be loath to use any of them.

Which leave him with three available relievers: Alex Burnett, Phil Dumatrait and Anthony Swarzak. None of them should have Gardenhire's confidence.

  1. Looks like the offense read your post and decided to completely obviate the need for any serious bullpen help.
