Bullpen a little leaky lately?

The Thunder's previous two losses have been directly attributable to bullpen failure. This leads me to wonder if perhaps the pitchers who bide their time just across the right-field foul line at Waterfront Park are a little bit tired at the season's late juncture.

Here are the innings each member of the pen has tossed this season, and, for good measure, their previous high.

Eric Wordekemper:
2009: 52 2/3 IP
Previous High: 81 2/3

Josh Schmidt:
2009: 77 1/3
Previous High: 68

Humberto Sanchez:
2009: 28 1/3
Previous High: 123 (when he was a starter)

Wilkins Arias:
2009: 55 2/3
Previous High: 140 2/3 (as a starter) 68 2/3 (solely as a reliever)

Jose Valdez:
2009: 53 1/3
Previous High: 60 1/3 (solely as a reliever)

Grant Duff - this is his first season as a full-time reliever (although he made one start with Tampa)
2009: 66
Previous High: 139

Kanekoa Texeira:
2009: 96 2/3 (!)
Previous High: 61
