Ricciardi's a Beane disciple. Batista gives up a lot of walks without K'ing too many, and saves are inflated in value among MLB GM's.
Is anyone thinking what I'm thinking?
Maybe a trade in the works?? Who would want him??
After 30 saves, a few teams would. Ricciardi knows not to put his best reliever in as the closer... Batista probably won't be his best reliever, a la Billy Taylor/Jason Isringhausen on the A's.
