my 3 cents
what i hope is that Stanton was signed for depth and maybe because teams are interested in one of our other middle relievers ( anyone except Coffey and Bray ).
what i don't want to see is a large collection of warm bodies pitching in the pen ala 2006. depth is good. quality and depth is better.
also i really hope we carry 6 relievers and 6 bench players ( not 7 relievers and 5 bench players like last year ). if we have 2 starters who pitch a lot of innings and 6 decent/good relievers then i would rather have the 25th man be a position player.
right now i count 2 set up guys ( Bray & Coffey ) and 4 middle relievers ( Stanton, Cormier, Belisle & Majik ). IF nothing else comes to fruition then i would expect Bray to be the 'closer' at the start of 2007.
