Apparently he was DFA'd by the Rays. Maybe we should look into picking him up?

I know the issues are with the pen, but this may help- who knows? He certainly isn't any worse than the present roster...

First of all, there is a reason he is being DFAs - he is pretty bad, adn they want the roster spot freed up - so why jam up one of our spts?

im not sure he would get much time here - are you are going to sit CJ or Parra to get him in the game outside of PH ABs.

As a PHer, he probably wouldnt be an awful add, but you have to drop someone - and im not sure thats an updrade.

If we are going to be dumpster diving - i want to do it for pitching.

But sadly, we don't have anything valuable to trade them.
Crying or Very sad

Im fine with trading haren at this point. Its time to start over.

If you trade Haren though - i think we need younger cheaper guys with more years of control.

Trading Danny for BJ wouldn't be a good move. We have a shitty pitching staff as is. Though I dream of pairing BJU and TJU in our outfield one day.

I'm fine with trading Haren at this point though, just not for BJ. A few young arms would be good though.

Congrats! Your car must be running better now with three tires and a used windshield. I hear the older windshield you bought used to have really good glass and that you got it at a bargain price!
