I can’t believe everyone is blasting this deal. I mean Todd Coffey isn’t the second-coming, but he’s a decent middle reliever who brings a ton of attitude and want to. People are saying that the Dodgers have too much pitching. HELLO! Can you ever have enough pitching? Young pitchers that can pitch WILL pitch. Ones that can’t will go back to the minors.
Matt Guerrier has injury potential written all over him. Is Blake Hawksworth able to pitch with regularity? Is Lindblom going to be as good as last year? Can Eovaldi pitch out of the pen? Will Elbert be consistent? Is Kuo part of the equation? And, then there’s Belisario – who knows what he will do? Ramon Troncoso, Kenley Jansen and Javy Guerra are all unproven, so another quality arm for a buck two-fifty is a no brainer.
I am not going to extoll this a great deal, but it certainly is not a bad deal. Mr. Coffey may or may no be good to the last drop, but for what Ned had to pay – I like the deal.
Remember this in July: YOU CAN NEVER HAVE ENOUGH PITCHING!
