Dude, when the weather warms up, so will we.I think the teal was a bit unnecessary.

BTW, Kenny already traded one bad reliever for another this year in the Aardsma-for-Cotts deal. I think MLB rules permit only one of the bad-for-bad trades per team in a calendar year.

Oh yeah. I forgot. Thanks for reminding me. By the way, I was sweating my butt off at the Astros' games, but "warm weather" is a subjective term. Last night was a warm one at The Cell. So was today.

Luckily there's a steaming pile of crap every time we step on the field lately. So I guess that means the weather is starting to get warmer.

This move was done because Ledezma was out of options and McBride has some. They are the same pitcher from what I can tell. Rogers is coming back on Friday, Nate Robertson is due to come off the DL soon and so is Zach Miner. Lots of shuffling going around for the #28 bullpen in the majors.

I actually think Ledezma has some really good stuff. If he could put it together on a consistent basis, he'd be dangerous. However...that's the story of our current bullpen
