When Yost brings him into a game with runners on first and second with one out and the game tied in the eighth at Detroit, or something similar, I'll believe they have faith in Hochevar. (AndI will have lost faith in Yost if they do that. There's just no upside when our pen is this stacked.)
I recognize the fact that yesterday wasn't mop up time, but it was still low pressure.
