Pondering how to use the bullpen

It is an area where Dave Trembley caught some criticism during last season - use of the bullpen.

It may also be the most difficult thing for a manager to manage.

All you have to do is keep everyone as fresh as you can, try to keep them in their roles, not warm them up too much without getting them in and have the right pitcher face the right batter (matchups) at the exact right time - and then get him out.
