    There's your closer. Last year he became Danry Vasquez, so he could be a decent little chip.

    I like this move, although I thought Strop would get a shot.
    All I do is hit. I even hit your mother once. Yep, hit it good.

    I like the signing. Really wanted Balfour and Thornton but they were never realistic options. At the price Veras and Wright are great values and could be steals.

    This offense isn't gonna build too many big leads so we need a good bullpen to protect the 1 and 2 run leads or at least keep the games close

    I kind of hope we go with Strop as a pre-closer Marmol role. Put him in when it feels like the game is starting to turn from our favor and have him corral us back. I really wish we would have kept Marmol in that role when he was on...

    Yeah Strop would scare me as a closer. If they were to have gone in house I would have liked to see Parker close.

    We should have a nice little bullpen this year at least.

    Bullpen looks better than last year for sure...I missed that we picked up Wright, not a bad move.


    hopefully Strop can continue to improve and maybe we get something out of Vizcaino this year.

    def some potential to be a decent bullpen.

    Definite improvement over last years bullpen. The front office hasn't made a lot of major moves, but they have made smart moves so far. Now lets just see them go after not just depth in the rotation, but some real players.


    Welcome back Theriot... and say hello to my little friend...

    Not sure why they needed to spend 4M on the bullpen. Maybe but fine...

    Looks like flip time again and I'm plenty sick of that. ugh

    The bullpen is an easy place to add some wins, especially to last year's team, given how bad it was.

    Fun fact that I saw on NSBB and isn't all that scientific but still fun:

    From Gregg's first save to the day of the Garza trade, the team was 39-40. 5-13 before Gregg, 22-43 after Garza.

    We still need to add another SP... so plz plz plz Tanaka.

    I'm sure that you've heard by now, but he's not being posted.

    I'm sure you've also heard by now that there are conflicting reports as there has been for a couple days now. Nothing is official yet

    Oh I agree about the bullpen being an easy way to add wins, especially after last year's debacle. I just figured there were enough arms in the system to do the same thing. Evidently they either see the opportunity with the available guys as starters or maybe don't see closer makeup in anyone. 4M is no a lot and maybe Bosio works some magic here.

    Starting pitching and more starting pitching (Tanaka), yes please.
