Out goes one washed up pitcher, in comes anopther. The latest find from the scrap heap. It is a shame the Dodgers are close to going deep in the post season, but the McCourts have spent 20 million so far on legal fees regarding there divorce and nothing on adding a quality arm.

Kinda excited to see Miller throw 99 percent sliders. Joe Torre and a excessive amount of breaking balls? Hmmm

Alright, now we’re two more releases away (Haeger and Miller) from cleansing our team of useless pitchers. =)
