My starting is ok, my bullpen is horrid.

I've been slowly lowering the pitch counts and IP .. in hopes of getting strong performances with 3-5 pitchers per game. I've switched my thinking so much I think I'm confusing the issue. ( Nothing is really working ) I am finally getting some 15-20 game winning starters. But my relief situation is a mess.Also, I put my Starters @ ANY, on Inn Avail. Long Releivers also @ ANY. Setup at 7,8, with my closer @ 9. Always set Closer @ closing situations only.Help !

I don't get paid to keep[ this current. I do this just to help newbies get up to speed. While I like to help, it needs to wait until I have time and energy to do it, and the mood strikes me.
