Salas threw his bat at an ump, too?!?

What the heck is going on with Tampa's farm system?

He's not over powering but has been getting the job done.Don't forget Danny Kolb saved about 50 plus games in a year and a half with throwing 95 mph. So did Todd Jones. They are working with Seth McClung in the minors who does throw hard but is wild.Anybody looking for cheap saves might want to take a look. Even if you only get a handful its better then nothing and could mean the difference in your league.


Hello 3 weeks ago. J/K... but this topic has been discussed alot in the closer thread over the past 3 weeks. And the pick up Brian Meadows advice is about 3 weeks too late.

I remember at the beginning of this year how Chad Orvella was predicted to be a decent closer this season. He struggled early and was optioned to AAA Durham. His numbers there:

16 G, 21.2 IP, 0.83 ERA, 0.87 WHIP, 30 K.

TB fans, any chance he still has a shot?

I have no idea why he's not up yet. Seriously, Durham Bulls' bullpen looks better than the D Rays. Orvella, Salas, McClung, Ridgeway can all contribute.

I was waiting for McClung, especially with his SP eligibility. But it looks like the Rays are riding the hot hand right now, which makes sense given their situation. I didn't know about Orvella though, he looks like he'll be useful too eh. I guess they're waiting till they're forced into making moves again..

McClung picks up a save in a 8-4 win today. Don't know why that was a save though. :-?

Either came in with bases-juiced or pitched two meaningful innings.
