No Ondrusek. Not reliable enough.
No Parra, no need for 3 LHP and walks too many, 5.12 career ERA. Lefty or not, does NOT make bullpen better.
Might we see a trade at the end of spring training?
Simon is going to have a hard time making the team because of the WBC. He barely pitched, and now has to stretch out all over again.
With Hoover, I completely agree with you and it will be a nice test of the bull**** meter for Jockety. If Chapman is in the bullpen because we're in "win-now" mode, then shouldn't Hoover be there as well since he's been the best pitcher all spring (options be damned)?
