6'4" is good... slim build should fill out... unless he's like Nippert or McCarthy. Still, he throws Ks on the board and, once he got past his dead arm time, he doesn't walk anyone. Period.

Eddie wasn't a 9th inning pitcher anymore. Anything that could walk that we could get for him was a deal worth making since it now forces FrankFrank to make a stand for his spot in the bullpen.

Good deal. Good luck, Eddie! I'll be rooting for your Twinkies in the Post Season.

It will be years before anything is known about Hamburger's major league ability - if it exists. And it probably does not. Once again the Rangers have major issues to resolve and I believe this includes the onfield coaching staff and even the GM. Nolan has a full plate in front of him, I trust him to make the necessary changes.

Great to hear. We definently need some relief help here in Clinton. Looking foward to cheering him on.
