You might be asking yourself, what in the world is a LOOGY? Well, it is a creative acronym for Left-handed One Out GuY. For reference, Pedro Feliciano, Damaso Marte and Boone Logan all are classified as LOOGYs. In my latest poll, the majority of voters said LOOGYs are important, but not vital to a bullpen. Twenty-seven percent voted the LOOGY is overrated.
Feliciano and Marte are both on the disabled list, and, sadly, will likely be out of baseball until next spring.
Logan, the only lefty on the entire staff other than CC Sabathia, got off to a bit of a rough start in his first three outings, but his last four outings have been excellent. In 3 1/3 innings, Logan has allowed no runs, no hits and two walks.
