john maine in red pinstripes?

Bob D said...

Nice, I didn't get Anderson and Slocumb on this

GM-Carson said...

For the record, it's spelled "Andersen" with an e at the end instead on an o.

And what's this about John Maine?

GM-Carson said...

Just read the rumor that the Phils are interested in John Maine. Gotta admit, if it's a minor league contract, I would love this signing. If he could get healthy, he'd be great insurance to have in Triple-A and even a decent 5th starter. Other than last year when his should was completely shot, he's been a decent starting pitcher. Low risk, high reward.
