Potentially Available Relievers

Decent relievers are always a hot commodity at the trade deadline.  The Rangers, Cardinals, Dodgers, Rays, Indians, and Phillies are just a few contenders who might be in the market for bullpen help a few months from now.  What will the trade market look like?

The Twins should trade Matt Capps for that Ramos kid!

I can’t think of anyone I’d be less excited to acquire than Aaron Heilman.

Woo, my team just got the best high blood pressure inducer in the league!

Octavio Dotel is pitching fine, he’s just not being used properly by Farrell..

He should never, ever pitch to a Lefty .

2011

Vs RHB .167/.231/.167 / 4.50 SO/BB / 0 HRs .. 26 PA
Vs LHB .286/.545/1.000/ 0.43 SO/BB / 3 Hrs …23 PA

Anyone else get the feeling that Farrell is a huge dud?

I dunno if he’s a dud, but he sure likes to pretend that he’s not very intelligent.

Re: Francisco Rodriguez
“$17.5MM option for next year vests with 43 more games finished”

can anyone clarify precisely what this means? 43 saves? I’m assuming it doesn’t mean just appearances. If this is true with saves, then the best hope for the Met’s is to actually continue to lose so there is no need to bring into the game. Otherwise the players association will be barking. Regardless, one thing is for sure, the Mets cannot let this option vest. No chance. Further this makes him almost untradeable in my opinion. Even if he is pitching well and can help a team contend, I don’t know one GM that would take the risk on him.

games finished means that he records the last out by a mets pitcher.

So for instance, mets are losing 3-2 (at home) going in to the ninth, Krod comes in to pitch the ninth to keep it close, he has a clean inning however the mets don’t come back in their half of the inning therefore he doesn’t get a ‘save’ but recieves credit for a game finished.

that being said. I cant imagine payying any reliever in the league 17.5 million for a year.

Ahh. Thanks. In that case the Mets should hope for many future blow outs against them. Only way to rationalize this.

well realistically they don’t have to put him in the ninth in to close out a game they are not winning, and making a point to not do that won’t get them in any trouble with the pa.

I’d put him in save opportunities only, chances are he won’t pile up 43 SVO anyways. a couple 4 or 5 out saves would help justify having to rest him the next day as well.

If I’m the Mets, I start showing Wright video of Adrian Beltre and tell him any pop ups near the mound after the eighth inning are his by divine right.

I can’t see anything that would get the Bucs to let go of Hanrahan. Someone would have to blow them away to part with him. Now Meek might be a different story if he can get healthy, and screw his noggin back on straight. Veras and Resop won’t be going anywhere if the club is even close to .500. That is all the sports talk shows have been talking about is the Bucs pursuit of .500 (sad I know). The city would put a witch hunt on for Neil if he got rid of quality late inning arms for prospects at this point. The big picture is gone as long as they’re at or near .500.
