Would you like to see Mike Stanton in the bullpen in 2009?
A fellow member requested we have a poll like this, so here it is. Mike Stanton needs 140 appearances in 2007-2008 to automatically have his 2.75 million option picked up, and he had 69 appearances this year. Mike Stanton has been a much better reliever previously, but it is clear he had a terrible year this year. He went 1-3 with a 5.93 ERA in 69 games, 57 2/3 IP, 75 hits, 18 walks, and 40 strikeouts. There is a chance Mike Stanton might regain his old form next year, but it is doubtful at his age. Vote Yes or No on whether you want to see Mike Stanton get the 71 appearances next year he needs to get the 2009 option. I voted No. He was once a good reliever, but make sure he is not used much next year. I just don't see any evidence he has anything left. I know Krivsky likes old relievers, but he has gotten rid of ineffective relievers before. I hope he does the right thing and retires in the off-season.
