Bobby Jenks thinks removing him from closer doesn’t make sense

He might get a few days to figure out the real problem, with Matt Thornton, J.J. Putz, or even Sergio Santos, moving into the closer’s role, although Jenks doesn’t see the need for a change.

“No, that doesn’t even make sense,” Jenks said. “Physically, I feel great. My fastball is back to what it used to be, and the stuff is there, but it just was off the mark today.”

What doesn’t make sense is why Ozzie put him in with a 2-run lead. Bobby needs a margin bigger than 4 runs.

UPDATE: Merkin:

In 13 games pitched this season, Bobby Jenks has retired the side without giving up a hit or issuing a walk just twice
