Gabe White available


Recommended Posts

Two questions:

 

Is he better than any of the following: Mota, Perisho, Mecir, Reidling, Alfonseca, Jones?

Is he worth taking a roster spot from Aguila, W. Delgado or Willingham/Harris/Little/Higginson/etc.?

Tough call...he would be another solid lefty in the pen. Has he played for Jack while at Cincy???

is he better then perisho? over his career much better, Perisho has had one good year. That being said Im not saying cut Perisho and sign White. If we can make it work then I just think hed be very good insurance. Maybe hed be willing to go to Albuquerque knowing how shaky Mota may be as a closer and also knowing Matt is a little out of shape and truly isnt proven except for one year.

He was released by the Braves...if they don't feel they can do anything with him (especially with Delgado, Thome, Abreu, Beltran and Floyd representing some of the lefty pop in the division) he's done.

 

These guys do get released for a reason. He's no better than Mecir or Perisho at this stage, so until Urbina becomes realistically available, I think our bullpen is set...

It's called having two lefties in your bullpen rather than one and Mecir. Please!

We need someone to be the 7th guy in the pen, I'd take White over Moehler any day...

That's the last thing we need.

 

Maybe when they expand the rosters we can add a 4th inning reliever after a 3rd catcher and designated pinch-runner.

 

What's the obsession with taking the ball out of our best pitchers and handing it to a 12th scrub? To add a southpaw for the platoon advantage? An extra lefty batter supplies the same platoon advantage without having to warm up in the bullpen. Quite absurd.

It hurts when you start using those lefties against righties as Perisho had to last year when Phelps was with the club.

 

It hurts when you have one less bat and defender on the bench. Hurts even more when you waste one of those bench spots on Lenny Harris.

 

There's 9 innings in a game. More if it goes into extra innings. This hasn't changed in 100 years. So why more pitchers?
