There are saves and blown saves for closers and holds for setup men, but there is no formal measure for the performance of those less-heralded relievers who enter with their team trailing by a few runs and hold the score, giving their offense a chance to come back. There should be. Managers often talk of the importance of holding late-inning leads and building a bridge between the starter and closer, but as the Angels have been reminded in the first two weeks, it's just as important to hold slim deficits.

The world's airline industry has rebounded from the recession and expects 2014 to be the most profitable year on record, thanks to stable fuel prices and growing travel demand. That's great news if you're an airline executive or shareholder. But don't expect the suddenly well-off airlines to pass along their good fortune to passengers by slashing fares. Industry experts do say the continued pressure from low-cost carriers should keep the big network carriers from imposing dramatic fare hikes.

I would like to commend the author of The Times editorial, "Double Standard" (Nov. 29), about the existing double standard in the U.S.-China relationship. On the same note I would like to express my opinion on the situation. I strongly feel that it is the duty of the United States to at least make some form of comment concerning the human-rights conditions in China regardless of its slightly paranoid fear of this act making a negative effect on the so far stable relationship with China.

Re "Teenage Mothers Should Get Married," Commentary, Oct. 4: Rather than advise young women to marry the father of their baby, who usually leaves her faster than you can say "shotgun wedding," why aren't we advocating responsible choices like adoption? This choice lets mature, stable, loving couples who are unable to have biological children become parents at a time when they are truly prepared for parenthood. It certainly seems a much wiser one than Dana Mack's recommendation of encouraging kids who are unskilled, uneducated and not yet emotionally ready to become role models for future generations.
