"Bochy said Wednesday that Benitez reported discomfort in his right knee, requiring fluid to be drained from it. If the Giants need to protect a slender ninth-inning lead while Benitez is sidelined, Bochy said he'll select his closer based on which matchups seem most advantageous.
Benitez injured himself Tuesday, when he suffered a blown save and the loss in the Giants' 5-4, 12-inning defeat to the Mets."
Can you say "scapegoat?" I apologize if I seem to be jumping on the guy too quickly, but this is ridiculous. Either this is the actual truth, this is an opportunity for Benitez to regroup mentally, or this is a way for him to find another excuse. We're all aware of Benitez' knee problems, but whether or not this is actually true is something I question.
Feel free to agree, disagree, poke fun, and come up with hilarious pictures of the guy.
