Only in America (and only in baseball) can a guy perform at a mediocre level for 2 years and get a raise that doubles his current pay. Why doesn't that happen to me? Wunsch did nothing in 2001, and he was flat out mediocre for most of last year. He had some good outings against Triple A players towards the end of the season, great. Bizarre.

A gift I think is highly overrated. I think his motion is more of a gift than his left hand. But that's just my opinion.

I think his motion helps against right handed hitters.

I'm so sick of GM's and Managers talking about how important a lefty is! If you dont know how to pitch, it dont matter what arm you throw with.

Wunsch is not that bad , but there is no need for him to be used in every close game as manuel will try to do. Now guys like Buehrle, that's a gift!

So Do I.....Hmmm that gives me an idea. My shoulder is finally recovering from all the damage that throwing too much as a kid did, so maybe I aught to learn how to throw submarine and then email everyone in baseball about my mad skills.

Daver, You would have to really go way back to find a lefthanded submarine throwing pitcher. I can't ever think of another one besides Kelly.

I realize that,but I also take into consideration what the value of a submariner is and the longevity of their career's,and I am glad he signed a one year deal,because injuries follow submariners like a dog seeks fire hydrants.
