    How dumb do you have to be ...

    to trade for a DFAed pitcher and immediately move him into a closer role. See the Deviled Eggs and Tyler Walker for an example

    Walker looked pretty good the other night too, IIRC.

    I'm not sure that was by design, although it might have been. The night before they had to use Miceli early to get out of a jam, and last night they might have been trying to just stay away from him altogether, if possible. The rest of their pen is really just atrocious.

    Walker had 23 saves last year as the replacement for closer Benitez in San Fran. He's not a bad pitcher.

    Still, the Rays need to pull a Cincinnati or two and excise OFs for SPs. Or BO pitchers, for that matter. That team has a chance-- with good management.

    Only because they tanked their last several games in order to get the #6 seed to play denver. They are a discrace to the NBA.

    I'm sure the D-rays will reach the playoffs one of these years if MLB expands it to 16 teams

    Hmmm... If he is bad he is bad, but didn't we trade for a DFAed 2B and then commenced to start him @ 2B? That has turned out ok so far. Just sayin'!
