You guys are ridiculous.

 

Gregg is a more than capable RP that has a good K rate and BAA. Yea, he is a flyball pitcher and gives up some jacks, but he's very durable, can pitch multiple innings, and combined with Nunez, and god willingly Vanden Hurk, as three big harder throwing right handers and mix and match Sanches, Badenhop, Wood, Leroux, and all the other candidates behind him.

 

This would be a great low cost signing if it happens. I can't imagine they'd be devoting a lot of cash to him. Plus, creates healthy competition for the closer spot.

maybe it's that the marlins got 3 homers off him in 4 innings last year, but this guy stanks like trouble. something about dudes playing baseball with glasses...

keep him out of the closer spot so he falls down to type B (was type A this offseason but not offered arb). if he has a good year, no one will remember 2009, and we can get a pick for him.

 

Not that we offer arbitration to relievers but that's beside the point.

I admit to not following Gregg much last season but I wonder how much his surgically repaired knee played in his woes during the season?

 

On a separate note it might have been at mlbtr or some other site but there was a short piece on Joe Nelson (who I have problems with for off-field reasons namely the way he whored himself around last off-season but that's me and has nothing to do with his baseball skills), the comment being except for one stretch, he put up pretty excellent numbers last season including a post-ASG or something that was like a 1.50 ERA. Just saying...my guess is the Fish stay far away on that one unless it's a minor league deal and even then there's a mea culpa due.

 

You never know with these surgically repaired guys...throw Calero in there too.

Nelson would have been lynched by the fans on here if he was with us last year. He had a good April but then got confused between BP and real games in May. Then he had a very good June but was horrible in July. And yeah, in July his ERA was low but that was a lot of luck, as he was terrible and was basically giving 1st base away. In June and July he had a tiny tiny BABIP, especially in June, and July was basically him loading the bases and the rest of the bullpen bailing him out.
