28 is still young for a relief pitcher considering most do not hit there stride until their early-30s.

I don't know if Allen will turn out to be a good MLB player, but I think Kenny gave up more than he had to.
WSI always says this. Personally, I think we sold high on Allen. Relief pitching is expensive, especially if you want to get a young arm.
