I thought this was a good move by Shapiro. And no, I'm not a Shapiro lover. I'm about as big a KW fan as there is. That said, I'm surprised KW didn't kick the tires on this guy. He's pitched pretty well for the Indians, and was regarded pretty highly a few years ago. They didn't give up much to get him, b/c there was bad blood going on in STL.

Not saying he'll become an ace or anything, but he could fit our #5 well right now. I also know that the deal happened before JC was lost for the year, but at the time I still thought it made sense for depth regardless.

There is no time for experiments during a pennant race.

Well, with Jose down we're kinda doing that.

Part of the falling out with management in St. louis hinged on Reyes' inability or willingless to throw a sinker that Dave Duncan preaches.

Kenny wants his pitchers to throw sinkers or be able to cut the ball in order to keep the ball from flying out of the cell. Reyes is a high fb pitcher that get lots of flyballs.
