Only thing I can hope for is that our SP's get healthy so we can move Alvarez back down to the bullpen. Haven't heard much on the staus of Edwin Jackson either, but he should be working in the bullpen as well.
Gagne seems to be winded out there now, 2 straight blown saves and he came on tonight throwing a good 5 MPHs slower than usual. a 93 MPH fastball is damn good and fast, but not when you're Gagne who is used to blowing a 99 MPH one past a batter for strike 3.
We;ll see if Dessens works out now from ARI, I'm mostly focused on maintaining our lead and getting Brad Penny back in the line-up.
