Dubee praises the talent in Phillies' bullpen
BALTIMORE -- It hasn't been easy managing the Phillies' bullpen. Not too many bullpens have four left-handers and three right-handers, although that changed Saturday with the arrival of right-hander B.J. Rosenberg.

"Is it tougher than any other year?" Phillies pitching coach Rich Dubee said. "I think it's more talented than those early seasons."

The Phillies had pitchers like Amaury Telemaco, Aquilino Lopez, Pedro Liriano, Eude Brito, Julio Santana, Fabio Castro, Matt Smith and others in the bullpen in 2005-06, Dubee's first two seasons as pitching coach under manager Charlie Manuel. The bullpen also included veterans at the end of their careers, like Tim Worrell and Terry Adams.

"I think we've got guys very capable of doing the job," Dubee said. "Whether it's too soon for them, we'll see. But I think the talent is better."
