I was really puzzled when they sent him down. He hadn’t been overused and he was pitching very well. I guess it was a numbers/options game….

1. Middle Relievers
2. Speedy Defensive-Minded Outfielders
3. High Average Low power infielders.

We could build a team with this profile from the free agent junk heap, waivers, and rule 5 drafts.

I’d love to see us develop some legitimate starting rotation options and some real power hitters at the corner positions.

I have a pretty good feeling about the future of the bullpen, I think Crotta could eventually surprise some people.  I’d rather have most of these guys compared to options like Beimel.
