I don't disagree, but let's see what we have before we give him away. No one will give us anything, unless someone happens to see something and really likes him (he did have good K totals most of the year)....in which case, make them pay.
Let's not forget- he closed our first win in 2012 at Texas. He's got some skills. I'm not one who believes you put your best reliever at closer anyway - that may end up being a good spot for him. Or late inning relief, with those K totals. We're not talking about a Veal here.
