If Bubba can get to the big leagues, he stands to benefit from the extreme pitcher's park. As it stands, I think I might just have a chance to see him pitch at Portland's PGE Park come season time.

Good for him. I'm glad he's getting a fresh start in a new organization. I hope he makes it.

Good Riddance. This guy isn't a big leaguer, he can't get minor league hitters out.

70K's in 69.1 ip in his first year in the pen and as closer. I'd have liked to see him close in Louisville.

please stop using evidence in your statements it hurts those who don't.

I hope Nelson makes it as well, I saw him pitch a coupe of times and his stuff is good...just has to figure it out.

Yeah, it's why i posted that. Making a two-fold conversion in one season, bullpen, then closer is tough on a guy, especially one that is used to starting. It's a different mindset.

He's low risk high reward for them, and it's a good park for him too if he gets there. I wish him luck.

Low risk, low reward I'd say.

That would be Germano.

Nelson misses bats, and it was his first year in the pen and in the closer's role.

the reward could be quite high. We'll see.

He finds a lot of bats too. Seems to me the potential reward is a #6 reliever.

mebbe, but it was only year one in this role. seems to me he was worth keeping if only to see if he could make the conversion and next step. It's not like he was blocking a better pitcher in this barren wasteland.

IMO, if a starter converts to the pen at a level where he's already pitched and still allows a 4.61 ERA and 1.38 WHIP then there's likely no next step to take.

Different mindset to go from starter to closer, unless you are John Smoltz. Plus he did so after coming off an injury and at age 23. Still, as I said, who was he blocking?

How many pitchers will that park make look good?

Good pickup for them.
