Look at the Cubs for instance, they have a whole bunch of castoffs, career backups, AAAA type players on their roster while they await players from either the minors or an FA signing to take their place.
Right - was thinking of the Marlins and guys like Greg Dobbs, too. Every team needs those bodies.
