That's not cheap, but the commitment isn't long.I'm glad they are serious about improving the bullpen.Now get Darvish.

I just saw that news and had the same thought re: Darvish. Bring him in. Spend the money.

This seems like a very good signing, as Reed is right in his prime years. A Hildenberger, Reed, Rodney back of the bullpen is something I have confidence in.

Reed I'd think. Don't think he comes here on a two year deal if he didn't think so too.

I'd think Rodney gets the first shot, but if his control issues cause problems, I could see a quick role change.

Aren't we past the time when it matters that much if you're the setup guy or the closer when it comes to free agent salaries?

But, but, but....multiple years?

 

Honestly though it doesn't look like a bad signing. I agree with the notion to keep spending.

He's actually above average, not old, and will help the team this year!

Nice! I’m pretty excited about this move.

Maybe the ice cold stove is heating up.
