How to build a bullpen SD Padres-style

2

One of the biggest complaints about Hendry, is how he has gone about building the Cubs bullpen through free agency (Remlinger, Eyre, Howry, Grabow etc.) This is an interesting article about how the Padres are doing it. "The San Diego Padres have reportedly signed Chad Qualls to a one-year contract for about two million dollars in an effort to restore some of the bullpen depth they’ve traded away this winter. In signing Qualls, they are making a pretty big bet against the predictive power of ERA, considering he posted an atrocious 7.32 mark last year....... Since relief pitchers throw just a fraction of the innings that starting pitchers accumulate, they are subject to much larger seasonal variations. They don’t have time to regress to the mean in-season, and as such, you’ll see things like a pretty solid reliever in Qualls posting an ERA over 7.00."
