What the f*** is the FO thinking? Riedling and Smith have been twice as bad as Bump.

OK, this is BS... Bump has been doing a bad job lately, but he was doing great since the start of the season. Perisho, even though I hate the guy, had nice numbers. It is not fair to get rid of guys in the bullpen because our bats are struggling. If that's the case, then Mike Lowell and Paul Lo Duca should also be designated for assignment... :thumbdown

The grass is always greener on the other side.

 

 

 

 

Looks like the club called off the big move for a few more weeks and needed some scapegoats to look seem they are working on the problem. Even the best of bullpens are a believable scapegoat to fans.

RotoWorld's Take

 

Matt Perisho - R - Marlins

 

Marlins designated LHP Matt Perisho for assignment.

Perisho had a 1.93 ERA, but he wasn't of much use as a specialist with lefties hitting .346 against him. Righties were at .130. Since he did just fine against lefties last year, there's a good chance he'll be claimed on waivers. Jun. 7 - 5:57 pm et

 

Nate Bump - R - Marlins

 

Marlins optioned RHP Nate Bump to Triple-A Albuquerque.

If not for Ismael Valdez's injury, the Marlins would have dumped Bump despite a great spring. Now they're demoting him even though he has a 3.51 ERA and a 1.25 WHIP. Last year, he had a 3.57 ERA in 68 innings as a reliever. He hasn't been one of the Marlins' problems, and he deserves better treatment. Jun. 7 - 5:55 pm et

 

Chad Bentz - R - Marlins

 

Marlins purchased the contract of LHP Chad Bentz from Triple-A Albuquerque.

Bentz, who had a 5.86 ERA in 27 2/3 innings for the Expos last season, had allowed one run in 11 innings since moving up to Albuquerque. At best, he'll be an adequate lefty specialist. Jun. 7 - 5:52 pm et

 

Valerio De Los Santos - R - Marlins

 

Marlins purchased the contract of LHP Valerio De Los Santos from Single-A Jupiter.

Six days after he makes his season debut? This looks like a terrible idea. De Los Santos had missed a year due to his latest shoulder problem, and he hasn't looked useful since the first half of 2003. Little should be expected. Jun. 7 - 5:51 pm et

Thanks Teal - I was starting to doubt what I heard also.

 

I saw De Los Santos pitch 3 times in Jupiter. He didn't impress. He had one good inning where he struck out 2 and even in that inning the "A" ball players he faced swung at bad pitches
