Don't really like this move. Grilli hasn't been any better than Frieri. We give away two and a half years of Frieri away for half a year of Grilli.
Hopefully Grilli can start pitching like he did last season.
That might be the most positive part of the entire thing. I don't think we had much to lose in making this move. If Grilli is bad, then were in the same boat but for less time. If Grilli works out we can have a dependable arm to resign next year. I'm not sure my blood pressure can take 2 1/2 more years of Frieri at this rate. We can address the bullpen this offseason.
I'm really happy that management isn't taking horrid play from our players. Ibanez and Frieri have been terrible and they didn't hesitate to make moves to make us better. They should have done it last year with Blanton. I think Blanton taught them a lesson. They kept that fat *** in the rotation way too long. Now if only we could work on not signing idiots, we will be ok.
