Ozzie likes his bullpen

New, comments

Ozzie already feels good for this year's bullpen:

[Joe Cowley]

"I got better this offseason ... I have. The reason we struggled last year was because we didn't have the bullpen. My bullpen is now strong. You know how many times I would put my arm up and hopefully have guys come in and get the ball to that eighth inning? Whoever I bring in now, I expect to pitch that inning, at least one inning. Last year, it was one guy for a lefty, one guy for a righty because we can't get anyone out. It got so bad last year that I would hear fans at home yell to me, 'Bring in [closer Bobby] Jenks.' And that was in the fifth."
I think I'll wait a bit!
