    Anyone know if Gruler is ever going to pitch again? Thanks to anyone who can help me out.

    Likely to pitch, doubtful he will ever have success after all the surgeries.

    Last year his velocity had sunk to the mid-eighties, I think, which is why he didn't actually get activated. It was still only a year or so post-surgery, so more should have returned by now. We can hope.

    Does a year off due to injury count toward Rule 5 elegibility?

    does it matter? (I believe missing seasons dues to injury does push it back)

    Yes. Rule 5 eligibility is determined simply from the time the player was drafted, not his "service time". But I think minor-league free agency may be determined from service time the way major-league FAs are.

    I'm pretty sure about the first part, a little less sure about the second.

    Every time I see Scott Kazmir show up in the box scores, I shed a tear.

    That's what a lot of us have thought for a while. Can you give any more details, or is it still not time for that?

    Hey, I should mention- I might get to see Bubba pitch this year in Portland. Where'd the Padres put him?

    Ithink I will wait a while before I let the cat out of the bag. Player development can someone tell me what that is can someone tell the Reds? Oh sorry teams that win 14 division titles they know player development.

    Can't argue there... unless you're talking about the 1970s.
