Roster questions...and answers

Just to respond to a previous question, Alex Requena is not on the DL. He is just fine.

Catcher Todd Jennings was called up to AAA Fresno, not because his numbers were so fantastic, but because there was an injury to the back up there and they needed an extra body. The Giants don't want to take at-bats away from Steve Holm since he's possibly the best offensive catcher in the system.

Replacing Jennings for the time being is right handed catcher Dayton Buller.

Baseball proably publishes more meaningless info then all the other sports combined, and this question ranks right there. Why does Stanley wait until the 5th or 6th inning before sending the relievers to the bullpen?

Just to keep the guys in the dugout with everyone else as long as possible. I'm not sure if it is Steamer's call or Mac's.
