Before I see countless "This thread blows!" pics on this thread, hear me out.

Octavio Dotel was one of baseball's best setup men back when he was with Houston (part of the Lidge-Dotel-Wagner bullpen). He is reportedly on the block with the A's going down the tubes, and he would look real nice switching off with Damaso in the 8th inning. Plus, getting Dotel wouldn't be too hard, considering how he has pitched lately.

He also was about to lose his job to Streets just before going on the DL.

Dotel can't get left-handed hitters out, even when healthy. Pass.

If I were KW, I'd pass on everyone on their 25 man roster. Besides a couple SP's we're not in the market for, I'm not impressed at all by any of them.

He's been available since he gave up walk off homeruns on successive nights in Boston. Not a real good choice.

Seriously.

The A's ****ing blow. The only thing keeping them from being the worst team in the American League, IMO, is that train wreck in Kansas City.

Maybe we can bring this guy back while we're at it? I mean he was a good deal from the A's......

That was one of the trades I felt best about at the time. No more dealing with the A's

I don't think KW will trade with Billy Beane ever again. The two don't get along very well.

plus getting Dotel is pointless, hes really not THAT good and we'd be giving up either a good positional player or a prospect. Not interested.
