Obviously the Phils needed some left handed pop off the bench, so I don't have a real problem with Tucker. I don't know if I would call this a steal because as you mentioned there are probably 100 guys in Triple A that can do when he does. I don't know anything about Pichardo, but he is only 19 years old and in 54.0 innings, he struck out 37 batters and walked just three. I will be following Pichardo now.

Also, The closeness of the race , and my opinion that Florida is the favorite got my thinking about Inter-league play, and specifically the unfairness of geographical or natural rivals. The Marlins get to play Tampa Bay every year. This is a distinct advantage. I looked it up and they were 6 - 0 against the pathetic Devil Rays. The Mets get the Yanks, but who cares, and the Phils get the Orioles (who were in first place at the time) and the defending Champion Red Sox. The Phis went 2-4 in those games, winning the series against the O's and getting swept badly by the Sox. If the Phils lose out to the Marlins by a game or two, I can't help but wonder what the outcome would have been with a fairer, more balanced schedule.
