Wunsch was added today to the final roster for the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Among those on the roster for Tuesday's opener at San Francisco are right-handed pitchers Scott Erickson, Buddy Carlyle and Steve Schmoll, and lefty Kelly Wunsch. The Dodgers purchased the contracts of the four from the minor leagues on Saturday.

The dodgers had a lot of injuries this preseason so who knows how long he'll last once they get healthy, I hope he lasts for awhile.

I always liked Kelly. He was the nicest guy on the team. He helped me out a lot when I was bat boy.

Kelly was always a pretty good pitcher and seemed to be a pretty nice guy. It's nice to see him continue his success.

Good for him. I never understood why the Sox treated him so badly last season.

I may be in the minority, but I never really liked Kelly Wunsch. He was a career minor leaguer until he came up with a funky delivery that got him to the major leagues for a while. But that stuff never lasts. Kelly Wunsch got dumped because he couldn't be counted on to retire even half the batters he faced.

He's a back of the pen guy with the Dodgers, but he won't last long even at that. Two or three four-pitch walks in critical situations and he'll be out.

When he first came up he did do the job he was asked to do very well, he just lost way too much velocity the last two years and obviously the sox frowned upon that. Even though in the little time he was up last season, he got the job done.

I freely admit that I believe he probably won't be around much more than a few more years, and even then he'll bounce from minors to majors constantly. I just wish the guy well and hope it works out for the best.

Harry Teinowitz is breathing a sigh of relief now.

I like Kelly and wish him the best.

For the last time;

He couldn't stay healthy. He was cracking in the low 80's in AAA. When he was removed from the 40 man roster back in August, zero, 0, NOBODY, NOT A SINGLE TEAM, NOT EVEN THE ****ING DEVIL RAYS claimed the guy.

He was a nice guy, had a funky look, and had a funky delivery, but the Sox just didn't have much use for him last year due to his health. But it's all Kenny's fault because he got in a fight with him. :rolleyes:

Exactly right. Middle relievers and/or lefty specialists who can only pitch twice a week (if that much) aren't of much use.
