  1. With Storen back, who the hell do you cut!?!?!

    Stammen – 1.66 ERA
    Mattheus – 1.69 ERA
    Burnett – 1.89
    Mike Gonzalez – 2.51
    Gorzelanny – 3.95
    H. Rodriguez – 4.74

    H. Rodriguez is young and hits 100 mph, so you don’t want to lose him for nothing.

    Gorzelanny looks like the logical choice, but fills the middle-reliever innings-eater role best, while the others are more one inning or batter-by-batter specialists.

    I think it ends up being Gonzalez. New guy, probably replaceable if you need a lefty specialist.

  2. Assuming they do not DL someone with a lingering or made up injury, it has to be Gonzalez. He’s the oldest, most hittable, strikes out the least, and walks more than anyone else this side of H-Rod. Plus he’s the third lefty.

    I would bet on someone getting put on the DL (maybe Desmond) as if its Gonzalez he will almost certainly be claimed off the waiver wire. Maybe they can trade Gonzalez for a mid-tier prospect at the deadline.

  3. Is [first letter of first name]-rod the standard nickname for players with the last name Rodriguez? If so, I want no part of it.
