Eno Sarris talks about Ozzie Guillen’s Saber Bullpen

Sarris @ FG:

The saber prescription for the bullpen seems clear: identify your best relievers based on their component skills and use them in the right matchups according to their handedness and arsenal. Ignore the inning and instead use your best pitcher in the highest leverage moment. Basically, have a relief ace who pitches in the most important moment in the game — and then find role players to fill in the blanks.

There’s some agreement that this would be an improvement over the current set-up man/closer plan. There might never have been a ‘pen that was truly run this way.

Well, until now. Check out Chicago’s South Side. …

I have a hunch that Don Cooper’s fingerprints are all over Ozzie’s bullpen decisions.
