    Wasn't that a New Deal program?

    Yeah I would trade him for a starting outfielder too, but if Parnell is involved in a trade, it's probably to a contending team. That team would rather surrender prospects than MLB players which would help that team win now.

    Agreed.

    If the Dodgers were really desperate, we could try Parnell for Lee

    Not like we have one now.

    We'd be calling up a bunch of guys to take over

    Familia, Mejia, Edgin and Carson are the guys who will probably pitch in the bullpen who I'll be following closest.

    well if you want to nit-pick LOL j/k, that was actually a hell of counterpoint.

    Ok then trade him but trade him for something we need, an outfielder please...

    I could see us trading Parnell to the Pirates for Garrett Jones.

    Never said I'd like it. I just read somewhere that Pirates were interested so I can see that going through.

    WPA is horribly biased towards closers. There's a reason nobody gives a **** about WPA.

    It judges how well pitchers pitch in higher leverage situations.

    We need to keep Parnell. He's our best reliever and he's young. Keep him
