Welcome to the back end of the bullpen. It’s hard to say who, exactly, will be here. I’m assuming that Kevin Cameron and Justin Hampson will be back — possibly even pitching in meaningful situations now that Doug Brocail is gone.
Beyond Cameron and Hampson, the Padres have plenty of options: Michael Gardner, Enrique Gonzalez, Carlos Guevara, Wil Ledezma, Joe Thatcher, Mauro Zarate, and probably some others I’m forgetting. I won’t bother with all those guys, although you’re more than welcome to include them in your guesses.
- Cameron: 65 IP, 4.04 ERA
- Hampson: 65 IP, 4.20 ERA
What do you think? Also, if you haven’t yet submitted guesses for other players, now would be a good time to do so. I’ll leave everything open through Friday and then present the final tallies next week.
