    They were. But things changed when AA made the team good. Shatkins wasn't able to adjust.

    There is no reason to react to a minor league deal, ever, and with the state of the pen, minor league deals are what they should be doing.

    18 innings last year, 10 hits, 8 walks, 14k. But yeah, minor league deal, so no cost if he sucks.

    Other than not having an high-level setup man or a really good lefty (kill two birds with one stone?), I like our pen.

    Shatkins won't attempt to obtain either of those though - so whateves..

    Watson would look good in our pen, although he's not the dominant force he was a couple years ago, would still be a more or less reliable lefty who would look fine in an 8th inning role.

    AA had his velo tick up last year and also was one of 3 RP who did not give up a HR, it's not impossible he could be of some use vs RHH this season, and frankly with OF/SP still of larger need this is the exact sort of pen deal we should be looking at.

    We won't get anyone good for OF/SP either.
