Well, Balfour is gone. O's doctors bailed, other docs saying he's fine. Balfour apparently is ****** and called Duquette personally. I'm interested to know what the O's saw that put such a scare into them.
I'm intrigued by Rodney. His surface stats didn't look good last season at all, but his splits tell a different story. He only allowed runs in 3 ballparks last season: Tropicana, Rogers Centre and Dodger Stadium. He held the O's, Sox and Yankees to .129, .167 and .190 BAs, respectively. And he didn't allow a HR after June.
Also hearing rumours of a trade for Papelbon, with Philly eating half, which would end up being cheaper than the O's were paying for Balfour. We'll see what happens.
