Lindstrom Still The Closer -- For The Moment -- Despite Shaky Outing


                 When Fredi Gonzalez was asked about Matt Lindstrom after Saturday's shaky performance, the manager looked up at the clock, noted the time, and said the he would go to Lindstrom again Sunday in a save situation if one occurs.

                  "As of 11:08, we'll give the opportunity to Matty," Gonzalez said.

                  Lindstrom, who took over in the ninth with a 5-2 lead, was unable to get ouf of the inning. He loaded the bases and was replaced by Leo Nunez with two outs. Nunez gave up a 2-run single to Aaron Rowand before striking out Edgar Renteria to end the game.

                 Lindstrom, who now has a 6.17 ERA, has had his moments

                 It looks like, at least for now, Gonzalez is sticking with Lindstrom. Would you do the same?

                 -- After Saturday's game, the Marlins optioned right-handed pitcher Tim Wood to Triple A New Orleans in order to make room for Ricky Nolasco, who will be activated Sunday.
