"I think it comes down to, especially if you're a reliever, if you can leave runners on base — inherited runners, stranded runners — it doesn’t really matter how," Bleier said. "The idea is with less than two outs and runners in scoring position, you need strikeouts. I think I proved a little bit last year that's not necessarily true. I came in in situations with second and third, no outs multiple times and stranded both of them with no strikeouts, or one strikeout, or whatever. I think that it just comes down to getting the job done any way."
