2015-12-15 14:00:00 (link to chat)Any chance Jeff Ames or Parker Markel become setup men?
(Ash Roth from Durham)
High-leverage guys? Eh, I'm not sure I see it. Bullpen guys, but I'm not sure I ever see them pitching in that kinda role. Ames more likely than Markel, in my humble opinion. (Christopher Crawford)
