Scott Patterson should be high on these lists.
I think he's worth a shot. He dominated AA for two years, but he was 27 and 28 years old during those seasons. He was playing in independent leagues prior to that but maybe he just fell through the cracks or figured it out late. For a minor league contract he's a perfect risk. Really, he's not much older than McBeth who we consider a young option for the future. Good call.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
