    Jay's aquired Merken Valdez from San Francisco for cash

    Don't know much about him but it says he throws 98 MPH. High ERA in a weak hitting division though. Never a thing as too many arms in the 'pen though. Current upgrade over a guy like Wolfe.

      Just a little bit more on Valdez:

      Valdez, 28, posted a 5.66 ERA, 6.9 K/9, and 5.1 BB/9 in 49.3 innings for the Giants last year. He throws in the mid-90s and was ranked among the top 60 prospects in baseball before October '06 Tommy John surgery.

        I like these acquisitions, Pen Arm's are generally cheap this time of year, then their value becomes a premium around the deadline, if we can keep developing serviceable arms while we retool the organization. We will have a good chance of getting project prospects during the process.

          We've had good luck with bullpen guys like this in the past. Hopefully, he can turn into a guy who we can rely on that we didn't have to give up much to get.
          Like Maple Syrup, Canada's evil oozes over the United States.

            Hard thrower that can't locate worth a damn. Worth taking a flyer in case he he has an epiphany and discovers the strike zone. Unless that happens he'll be in Las Vegas.

                Can only be BLLite if he can throw a sinker that fast.
