The headline on Sheldon Ocker's game story says it all:

Bullpen implodes again for Indians

After only 27 games of the schedule, the relievers have an aggregate record of 4-7 with six saves. They began the game Tuesday with a combined ERA of 5.89 and pitched badly enough to actually raise it to 6.49 after giving up seven runs in two innings.

Without changes, it's unlikely that the ongoing problem will get much better any time soon.

The bullpen problems have gotten so bad that Wedge said the club may start looking for outside options.
"We have to keep working hard to figure out how to get the guys that are here going again," said Wedge( in the Plain Dealer). "We'll continue to make changes. We'll continue to try people whether they're in Triple-A or not even in this organization. We've going to do whatever we have to do to get people down there that we can count on."
