Using the closer in none close situations

Hey NY Royal and others, I know it was mentioned by someone (i thought it was NY that's why i mentioned you) that the team's best pitcher should come in in the hardest situations of the game, regardless of inning. We were talking about soria at the time and trying to figure out a way to max his positive affect on the team. I know this was a couple of days ago but did you see Papelbon come in in the 7th against Tampa, shut them down, and the Sox eventually came back and won. That was a great move by Francona, and I'm not just saying that because they came back and won. Papelbon, the best pitcher on the team came in the pressure situation and closed the door. I don't think Hillman would ever do this but I wish he would.
