Linebrink getting “break” from 8th inning role: Dotel, Pena and Carrasco to share those dutues.

no thornton?

Matt Thornton would be the logical bridge to closer Bobby Jenks, but Guillen likes to use Thornton at any point late in the game to get out of trouble. Octavio Dotel and Tony Pena will get late looks, but Guillen added that middle reliever D.J. Carrasco should not be ruled out. “If we think Carrasco is the guy to do it, we’ll just pitch him for an inning,” Guillen said. “Carrasco can do a lot of things. I think Carrasco has a stamp on his forehead, ‘pick-up garbage guy.’ Everything he’s been doing has been great.”

UPDATE: Ozzie said he wants to get Linebrink “back on start.” Linebrink’s response: “Get me back on track how?”
