How in the world did King not get mentioned yet?!

And whoever said some guy on the Yankees who could take saves away from gordon? I don't think its Felix Rodriguez, I think its someone everyone forgot...Karsay. The guy has stunning stuff for a leaver when hes on. And I think most people forgot his numbers before his injury.

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

Linebrink and Otsuka combine into a holds machine.

I also like Scot Shields in Anaheim now that Percival is gone.

What about Rafael Soriano? Is he setting up this year? He had an amazing '03, what happened ? He the closer of the future after Guardado's done for the M's?

Look at all those Questions! :-D

he's rehabbing from Tj surgery .. original return was set for around august, but now i'm hearing around the all-star break and he just started playing catch this week..... i'd say he's immediately the M's top set-up guy when he returns, and defenitly their future closer unless they decide to start him... they could someday have a nifty front end of the rotation with Felix, Soriano, and Pineiro

His stats show him pitching a few innings last year... what's up with that?

he was the ace starting pitcher for Licey in the winter leagues last year and mightve been overworked... i think the m's were thinking about using him as a starter, but when players reported for spring training, he started complaining about soreness in his elbow... he pitched those few innings in the first week of the season, got rocked, then they shut him down for awhile... they didnt decide to go with surgery until august so that delayed his timetable even longer.... but he's the perfect example of why teams are scared to play young players in the winter leagues, and probly why Felix Hernandez didnt pitch there this year
