Obviously if there was anyone else I would have grabbed him..Were talking about a filler for one of my 10 pitchers spots... in the 21st round.. Tsao is the only other option that has a chance at closing (Coors field
No thank you!) besides, Dempster....The job IS Affeldt's for now at least...
Thanks for all your opinions...I ended up getting Affeldt, and like his chances to not stink it up, and get around 25 saves.. again..Thank you very much
