Doesn't make a lot of sense to me. Given his first inning difficulties, I don't think Snell would be that effective coming in cold in the 8th inning of a tight game.

I can't see that either.

If true, a perfect example of a team trying to buy low.

Pass

Considering that Snell has two solid years of starting under his belt, and can throw 95 when he's on, you're not going to give up on him after one bad year.

Now Zach Duke, I can see moving to the bullpen. Probably not this year, but if he continues to pitch like this, it's just a matter of time until he's pretty much facing just lefties.

IF (emphasis on if) these pitchers they got back from the Yanks and if the snatch a legit pitching prospect in the Bay deal, then you have some real nice competition for the rotation. Some of the losers - Perhaps a Duke or Dumatrait - go into the pen.

Internal competition is invaluable in making any sports team its best, imho.

Dumatrait has been the 2nd best starter on the team this year...With him around and the pitching just acquired...Duke might be gone

I definitely like what I've seen from Dumatrait, I just need to see more before I'm convinced he's going to keep it up.
