Kenley Jansen admits to being ‘sick and tired’ of Dodgers’ bullpen criticism

Kenley Jansen

Los Angeles Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen struck out the side on Friday against the Miami Marlins, not allowing a single runner to reach base in the process. He admitted afterwards that there was a little bit extra behind it.

The Dodger bullpen was responsible for two lost games in their series against the Philadelphia Phillies during the week, with Jansen melting down in one of them. He admitted after Friday’s 2-1 win over Miami that he was tired of hearing the criticisms and answering the questions that came along with those struggles.

Jansen pitched through an injury when blowing a save in Philadelphia, ratcheting up criticism from both fans and his manager. The Dodgers will be playing in October, and the bullpen is viewed by many as their biggest potential weak spot. Jansen is tired of hearing it and made a statement on Friday; now some of his teammates may need to do the same.
