Oakland A’s closer Andrew Bailey is currently warming up in the bullpen for the American League. Jon Lester just finished up the sixth inning with the AL holding a 1-0 lead. Although Bailey has been phenomenal as a closer, it’s safe to say that if the AL holds their lead, Mariano Rivera will be the pitcher closing out the game in the 9th.
Nonetheless, it’d be nice to see Bailey get a chance to pitch in the game and potentially get a hold. Last year, Bailey sat in the bullpen without getting a chance to pitch.
