This is not to say that Blake Wood can't increase his strikeout rate and turn himself into a reliable set up man before it is to late. He does have the stuff to do it. A mid 90s fastball with life, a power curveball and a change up. The stuff is definitely there for him to be a bridge to Soria in the ninth, but if he can't improve upon his K rate it will beomce irrelevant.
The bullpen is pitching extremely well right now and it would be hard for Yost to attempt to fix something that isn't broke. But I am simply requested that Yost be ahead of the curve. Use statistics to recognize the mirage and allow Wood to pitch in less critical situations until his peripheals improve. Until then take advantage of Farnsworth's career year and pitch him in the 8th while attempting to improve upon his trade value, showing that he can continue to get outs in critical situations and not just with a four run deficit.
Update: KCroyals.com has got to be kidding me with that article about Blake Wood.
