Questions: 2B, Carroll, Gorzellany, Rhodes

 

1.   Did anyone see Gorzellany pitch last night?  What type of pitches does he have?  I wish I had the chance, but we didn't get the game here.  It sounds like he was really impressive.

What on earth were the Pirates thinking giving him up?  Did they like Josh Harrison that much?  Gorz had a great year in 2007, is the same age as Hart, and was doing great in AAA seemingly on his way to becoming the same pitcher he was before.  For a young lefty who is under team control for many more years, it seems hard to understand how they could give him up like that.

Case in point:  how good was Zach Duke the last 2 years?  Wouldn't they want to hold onto him?

 

2.  2B seems to be a black hole for the team.  Why not consider someone like Jamey Carroll of the Indians?  At least the guy gets on base reliably.  The other possibility would be Omar Infante, although I'm not sure Atlanta would give him up.  Right about now, I really wish we would have just held onto the guy. 

Even Michael Eckstein might be an upgrade... he has actually hit pretty well outside of Petfield (although that's really weird, since he is a slap hitter kind of guy and you'd expect the field shouldn't make that much of a difference).

I was hoping Fontenot would be good on an every day basis, but he has really disappointed. 

 

3.  As the bullpen is having problems, what about someone like Arthur Rhodes or David Weathers?  I am thinking of people who might actually pass waivers.

 

It was my understanding that Hendry has some extra bucks to play with (I think we was going after Teahen) and people like this shouldn't cost a whole lot of dollars or prospects.

Thanks for your wisdom, as always!
