    Justin Speier please.
    You want to spend 4.25 million per year for 4 years on a middle relief pitcher? Finding a good middle reliever is too much of a crap shoot to do that.

    You and the potty humor....geez.

    Oh wait....that's one of the reasons I think you are not so bad.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    They may be expensive, but it doesn't mean you should spend less on ancient pitchers. It doesn't work that way. There's no value in "bad."

    I don't know if I would call Stanton "bad". He's average, and average is an upgrade over what we had last year.

    I mind that he's the #1 LH PH.

    Another good point--this team's bench sucks.

    The bullpen had its share of "average" last year. Why not "good" for once?

    All you need for a bullpen is alot of "average" and a good closer. Problem is we don't haev a good closer.

    You need lots of good. Or at least two very good pitchers in the pen to contend.

    You can patch a bullpen together if you have a good closer.

    See: the Cardinals in the 2006 playoffs.
