    Howington and Journell released

    One's a surprise, the other isn't.

    I wonder if Journell was hurt, or just looking for a better big-league opportunity?

    Don't understand releasing Journell. He put up some good numbers in the minors, and if healthy could have been a surprise out of the bullpen.

    I'm getting the distinct sense that the Krivsky regime doesn't care to teach control to older pitchers.
    Wait until the year after next year.

    For everybody who is writing Bailey in to the rotation....
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Especially the ones acquired by his predecessor(s).

    Journell could be injured or something still. He didn't dominate in the limited action he saw, but he wasn't meat either.

    Howington's gone so that high school first round draft pick failure is now official.

    Wonder how long until Gruler sees the pink slip and also becomes another official high school first round draft pick failure.
