Hock A (LOOGY): Time to do away with lefty specialists

Usually, the only evidence he was ever in the game comes not from the box score, but from the collective groan audible from the crowd reckoning with the fact it is about to watch two pitching changes in a span of one, maybe two, outs. Let’s be clear, the only thing more exciting than watching an aging manager waddle like a penguin to the pitching rubber and summons a substitute reliever is watching that same manager do it twice in five-minutes time.

They supposedly offered the position to Creighton’s Greg McDermott, but he chose to stay with the Blue Jays. I believe that’s all for the best because I was
