There's more certainty of remaining resources,

By: Troy Story.

matchups the later in the game it is. And the fewer the games to plan for. The Brewers only had to deal with seven games and it still caught up to them. I did like their strategy though. We had the better starters, they had the better bullpen. So why wait to employ your strongest resources based on tradition. If you flip the extra inning game(50/50 odds) the strategy works. But I like it better in a series than a full season though. We'll see more of it now because of the Brewers this season. These things go in cycles. I believe this bullpen trend really started in 2014 with the Orioles and Andrew Miller. Counsell has pushed it further than we've seen before.
