Interesting. Fill me in on this guy. Yahoo says he's a 11 year veteran of the league, but I've never heard much about him besides middle relief. Why are you considering picking him up? I thought Jorge Julio was the closer in Baltimore. Fill us in!

Buddy Groom is pretty much a career relief pitcher, usually left-handed set-up man. Last year he had the best year in his career.

That said, he may get a few saves with Baltimore's closer situation, but I wouldn't look for much from him. I don't see much benefit in picking him up... better to grab a long-shot prospect/sleepr (Bret Myers?) than another relief pitcher who will MAYBE get 15 saves over the year. If you must pick up a reliever, grab someone like Dotel or Arthur Rhodes before you grab Buddy.

Just my oppinion.
