Slama and Waldrop or Bust!!!

It's hard to slam the Twins bullpen in fact, if you look at the bullpen it looks pretty damn elite with 5 sub 3 ERA's (Rauch, Burnett, Mijares, Guerrier, Duensing)  and two of those even being sub 2 ERA's (Duensing and Guerrier).

Then there's Crain and Mahay.  I realize Crain has been much better and got screwed his most recent outing tonight by horrible errors.  Mahay is in my mind in a way just a roster filler, veteran who if Neshek had stayed healthy or if Mijares hadn't sucked initially would likely have been stashed at AAA for most of the season. 

So while Crain may not deserve the hate, he doesn't deserve a whole lot of love either.  He's been inconsistent over the past 2 years and I believe it's time to cut and run, especially when you have two, three if you count Neshek, enticing replacements sitting at AAA.

 

So i propose putting Alexi Casilla on the 60 day DL, and cutting Ron Mahay to make room for Waldrop and Slama on the 40 man and put em in the major league bullpen.  They don't have much anything left to prove in the minors and if one of them can make the step the Twins bullpen is great across the board.  Combine this with the fact that Neshek will hopefully be back and well, nuff said.

 

This has been more of a rant than anything.  I have been mostly patient with the Twins handling of Slama and Delaney.  Although it appears they may have been right to not put Delaney in the bigs as he's not looking so hot now I think it's about damn time Slama gets his shot and Waldrop has been great as well.

 

Thank you for reading my poorly written not edited rant.
