Evans tells The Sports Virus why the Mark Melancon acquisition means more to the team than just him saving games: “…When the phone rings down in the bullpen they almost know who it’s for. I think that’s part of our success in these three World Series is guys knew when that phone rang, what time of the game it was, what the score was, they knew who was going to be getting up. I think that really puts guys minds at ease and they don’t have to give a second thought to the position that they’re being put in. We put ourselves in a tough position last year as we weren’t clear who would pitch the ninth. Now we can allow that to play out for the other guys with a clear ninth guy.”
