Haven't you heard?
a) He's no good any way. He had his shot.
There's not enough work in the pen on a team that's carried 13 pitchers for large chunks of the season
c) There's only 1 spot open on the 40 man.
d) "He'll get his shot."
Do try to keep up.
e) Luis Perdomo and his 6 k/9 in AAA "earned" and "deserves" a look.
f) His stuff doesn't play.
g) He has a weak mustache.
h) Just because.
For the record, I do agree with them on item g).

Are they even trying any more?
It sure doesn't seem that they are.

Well Perk got some work.
I was personally impressed by the intestinal fortitude it took to hold him (or Burton) back in case he was needed to save the 9th while strategically using mediocre relievers when a far less meaningful situation occurred in the 7th: no outs, two on, tie game...
