There's an old name that brings back memories (mostly bad ones). Does Anderson still throw anywhere near 100 mph and can he actually throw a strike yet?


Possibly and no, what a waste of an arm.

Nope, never has never will, he is a headcase. Just stick with Orvella. ;-D

What about Fernando Rodney in DET? If Jones falters or is injured he should be in line. Didn't do too bad with the time he had last year.

Couple that were missed...

Miguel Batista (though I think Valverde has it pretty locked up)
Shinji Mori (TB, first alternate after Orvella)
Hermanson (hey, you never know, he came out of nowhere last year, and Jenks could struggle)

It's LHP (Left-handed pitcher). :-D

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Hanson

Wagner (You gotta believe!)

Soriano IMHO is very interesting. He could be a real good sleeper in deep leagues, especially if the Mariners trade Eddy.

Joey Devine
Macay McBride
Blaine Boyer
Chris Reitsma

All have the potential to close for Atlanta next year, although McBride is a Lefty, so he's probably the least likely of the group. Heck, I might even throw in Villareal, too, although he'd be more the "sleeper" of the bunch. :-b

Stay tuned for spring training, and if no one is clear-cut, you may see something similar to last year where it's just a process for a few months.
