« Morning malarkey: No offer yet to Soriano | Main | Rosenthal: Phils offering Helms everyday job at 3B »

Wow, Mazone is pretty interesting. He doesn't even make it out of the independent leagues for a full season until he is 29, but then puts up two incredible seasons at AA and AAA. Those kind of hit rates, HR rates and K/BB ratios can't be flukes...the guy knows how to get people out. I don't care if you are 5'2" and throw Euphus pitches all day, this guy is good.

I think right now he would be my #1 canidate inside the organization for the 5th spot in the rotation (although this may say more about the dearth of internal options than Mazone).

I also think King would be an offensive improvement over Nunez, though probably giving it away with defense.

And to continue the Soriano thing (which is really all there is to talk about), I've been in favor of signing Soriano given the qualifications I (and Oisin) made forever. I was only anti-Soriano when he was compared with Manny.

yes- transactions!

wait, these are only minor leaguers...well, it's something.

Err...never mind on King, .302 OBP at AAA! Enjoy your Iron Pig hat Brennan!

The Mets added another outfielder to their left-field mix Wednesday, acquiring Ben Johnson and right-hander Jon Adkins from the Padres for right-hander Heath Bell and left-hander Royce Ring, has learned.

File these signings under "Misc.-Trivial" category. Maybe Mazone gets some time but the rest are pure fillers.

Mazone has some definite potential at the least as insurance for the Phils sitting at AAA. Kind of like a Paul Byrd type. effective but not flashy. Good signing with him.

No doubt the steroids helped Mazone.
