台灣棒球後繼無人了, 王建民垮台, 郭泓志不再受教練信任, 撤除set up man角色
看來不論是世界棒球經典賽, 奧運, 台灣職棒, 美國職棒大聯盟, 台灣人都明顯退步, 國家是不是該重視體育人才培養了??
SAN FRANCISCO -- One day after he declined for the second time in the past week to bring in eighth-inning setup man Hong-Chih Kuo to protect a one-run lead in the eighth inning, Dodgers manager Joe Torre finally acknowledged before Tuesday night's game with the San Francisco Giants that the role doesn't necessarily belong to Kuo anymore.
With reliever Cory Wade due to come off the 15-day disabled list on Thursday, Torre said he is the likely heir to the role. But Torre added that Wade will need to get back into the flow of pitching regularly in big-league games before he is given the job full-time. Until then, it appears the assignment will be doled out on a game-by-game basis.
Wade's most recent appearance before being sidelined by bursitis in his right shoulder was on April 11 at Arizona.
``Cory would be that guy,'' Torre said. ``I also think I could flipflop both him and (Ronald) Belisario. I'm not sure I want to do that with Cory until he is back a while. But that would be ideal to do that, yeah.''
The problem with Kuo is his history of arm problems. He underwent two Tommy John surgeries while still in the minor leagues, he missed most of 2007 with injuries to both his shoulder and elbow, and he missed the final two weeks of last season and the first round of the playoffs with elbow soreness.
