    I am surprised Astros got themselves a Loogy. I don't want to see him used in long outings unless he shows stuff plays up a lot in pen.

    Or Jason Martin or Ramon Laureano. Doubt it's Fisher.

    Outside shot it's a guy like Preston Tucker (who is still on our 40-man).

    The Blue Jays should be paying us to take Liriano. He's been awful.

    Should we start the Tony Sipp appreciation thread or is it too early?

    He's been solid against lefties. Hopefully putting him in a relief role will help. Reports are that they're still going after Britton.

    Liriano and Britton would be a hell of a boondoggle. Like this addition quite a bit.

    Maybe being in the 'pen would help him and us mutually. I heard we are still trying to inquire the Orioles about Britton.

    5.88 ERA. Hopefully we traded a Preston Tucker/Tyler White caliber for him.
