Maybe a package of one of them with a Neftali Soto or one of the fringe relievers like Ondrusek or Simon.
Last year was a bit of a career year, otherwise, he seems pretty similar to Chris Heisey. Not sure there would be room on the roster for both of them.
Yeah, I was sort of thinking Heisey and a 2nd tier prospect.
How, then, are those people of the future—who are taking steroids every day—going to look back on baseball players who used steroids? They're going to look back on them as pioneers. They're going to look back at it and say "So what?" - Bill James, Cooperstown and the 'Roids
