Seriously these two guys are horrible. We opened our eyes and saw that Koch blew so we got rid of him. Now we need to find another home for these two. Our left handers in the bullpen are okay but we need another good right hander. And although Adkins is pretty good, I still think we need to go out and get someone. No more Cliff in the bottom of the 11th when he usually walks one man per inning. We need someone who can throw strikes. Jackson usually can, but normally they are gopher balls.

Hopefully. He has done everything asked and more in AA. Jackson and Politte are batting practice.

Let's do a little reality check. EVERY team in the major leagues needs pitching. EVERY ONE. Now, let's look at

Politte: Released by the pitching and bullpen deprived BLUE JAYS.
Jackson: Couldn't even get a gig last year, in all of the major leagues.

It's just shocking these guys aren't world-beaters.

And don't say what about Tom Gordon, b/c he was an injury concern...he always had the stuff. Politte has no stuff and Jackson is just old and bad now.

Bajeneru and Wunsch would probably be better in this bullpen than Jackson, Adkins or Politte. (Diaz in the pen anyone?) We dont have any serious dough in any of these three and with the money we saved on Koch we can afford to demote some of these three. Plus we're wasting money on Wunsch too when we could use him if he got healthy.

What the hell happened to Cotts?
