Not just today...but has anyone else felt that JR waits about 2 batters too long to pull a pitcher in trouble. I know you have to conserve the bullpen..but what good is a bullpen if you're always playing catch up?!?! It is absolutely painful to watch this on a regular basis. Maybe Ryan or Garrett has a few more solo shots in them...

Walks and hard hit balls usually are a sign it's time to change pitchers.

Yes, quite!!!!!! I think our bullpen is far from being overtaxed, and he definitely went to long with Paul today. I pull him after Braun at the latest. You hand him a three run lead and he can't throw strikes? No, I lose sympathy for him real fast.
