Turnbow Staying Put?

Andy Baggot of the Wisconsin State Journal speculates that Derrick Turnbow could become "attractive trade material" if he can return to form this year.  As you know, relievers are in short supply.

So far this spring, Turnbow has walked four in 8.6 innings.  Not much can be said from that sample.  While his strikeout rate was a career high last year, Turnbow was lousy by every other metric.  The Brewers have him signed for $5.5MM for 2007-08.   

Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel pondered whether the Crew's recent Elmer Dessens acquisition could open the door for a Turnbow trade.  While teams have scouted Turnbow (the Red Sox recently), GM Doug Melvin said he would not trade him.

With Francisco Cordero a candidate to leave as a free agent after this year, perhaps the Brewers are still holding out hope that Turnbow can be their ninth inning guy.

Relievers are in short supply?

As an A's fan, I can say that I am supprised. While we haven't been having much luck with Starting Pitching, we have a massive load of relievers.

Huston Street
Justin Duchscherer
Kiko Calero
Alan Embree
Chad Gaudin
Jay Witasick
Jay Marshall

Leftovers:
Marcus McBeth
Mike Mitchell
Brad Halsey
Scott Dunn
Santiago Cassilla
Shane Komine
Conor Robertson
Lenny DeNardo
Ron Flores
David Shafer

Impressive. Why don't you send one of those guys to the Indians so you can keep Goleski and send him down for more seasoning?

ha ha ha ha ha ha, u just included alan embree in a rp surplus. This is coming from a 2004 Red Sox WS fan.
