No real reason not to have him there, give him an inning or two here and there.

They called up eight last year (two on September 1st), and they weren’t contending.

The difference is that Price was already on the 40-man in 2008. Cole isn’t on the 40-man. Price had also made four starts in Triple-A, while Cole is only starting to get settled down in Double-A.

I kept thinking there was a left-handed option they had, but for some reason I kept thinking about Moskos, who was lost via waivers.

I usually answer everyone’s questions via comments, e-mails that I get, or Twitter. So I’ve been looking for a free alternative and continuing to answer questions this way, rather than paying a couple hundred dollars a month to keep a weekly chat going.
