DateQuestionAnswer
2010-08-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Dave Dombrowski has also made some questionable free agent deals with relievers: Troy Percival - $12M for 2 years when his K/IP rate was in freefall Todd Jones - over $17M for 3 years when he was never consistently great On the other hand, besides letting Lyon go, he's let others sign Jamie Walker and Fernando Rodney to long term deals. At least he doesn't tend to reward middle relievers with multi-year deals.
(Michael from Detroit, MI)
So much about relievers is guess-work. Both Percival and Jones were grasping at closers, and I understand the desperation if not the choices. At least he was aiming at the good part of the bullpen, not, as you said, at low-leverage middle relievers. Can I say again: Chan-Ho Park. (Steven Goldman)
