Looks like there's plenty of long-reliever help in the bullpen (Zambrano, Jannsen, Downs, Marcum) in the pen should Gus, Ohka or Towers struggle early. Nice to have that flexibility, now let's just hope our 7th/8th inning guys can do well too (I'm still not sold on Accardo - hope that League can get his velocity back!)
Yeah, I heard this today as well. I think it was the right decision. Towers has shown in the past he's capable of putting up good numbers over a major league season for us. He just has to be on a short leash, however.
Oh, and welcome back Rance, I don't think you've been here in a long time, though I do remember you from when I first joined this forum a few years ago, and from what I remember, you were a knowledgeable Jays fan.
