    Yucky signing, imho. Never impressed with him. But, then, we're a yucky team, so.......

    The important is: Do we have to remove someone from the 40 man? If so, who?

    I don't think so. I believe he was signed to a minor league deal or will be.

    I think this is a solid signing. We needed a lefty reliever and the FA market has been pretty crappy for them. Beimel is a decent lefty.



    That was his last 5 seasons

    Here's his lefty split number from 2010..



    He's not quite as good as Javier Lopez was for us last season but there wasn't really any Lopez types out there. Beimel is a nice short term option while guys like Watson and Moskos get a little mroe time in the minors

    Why? Mike Lincoln is a righty that blows goats



    Joe Beimel is a decent left reliever (which we need right now)

    What I don't understand is why the Bucs would sign Beimel to a contract that will pay him 1.75 mil if he makes the big club... and be happy about it. Yet they offer
    Ohlendorf 1.4. and take him to arbitration because he wants 2 mil. I think Beimel is a decent signing , they needed a lefty bad , but ...why be so cheap with Ollie

    No idea. i'd have already paid Ohlendorf what he wanted since I see Ohlendorf more. this could be more of a precedent type of thing. Not showing a weakness in negotiating, seeing who budges first but not giving this belief that you're a GM that will give in to any demand? and vice versa. I guess we'll call it "negotiation"

    Even though JB and I share an alma mater, the best I can say about him is that "he has good hair."
