“Ow, my elbow.” -Edgin
“We may start the season without a lefty reliever.” -Collins
“I wasn’t prepared to give any left relievers a major league contract this offseason.” -Alderson
Awesome job everybody! Way to tout our pitching (bullpen included) for the past 6 months! Way to leave a crucial element all on one guy’s elbow! I know Edgin has been great, but have a fucking insurance plan. Now we stand to lose Gee, Colon, or BOTH in a “we know you’re desperate so here take this shitty lefty” trade.
P.S. LEARN YOUR LESSON! Sure things up at SS and C. Even if Flores and d’Arnaud are both great, we still need depth goddammit! Hell, sure up 3B while you’re at it. And don’t tell me Brittlebones Cuddyer is the backup third baseman.
