It would be nice if more of the pitching had developed so that they could have pulled a deal similar to the Michael Pineda and Jesus Montero swap.

Ayala, Lindstrom, and Gregg will be free agents and will probably move on.

I'd be willing to keep Lindstrom but Ayala's Inherited Runners Scored numbers are awful. Pass.

So, he's not really an ideal guy to put in when theres nobody out and a runner on second. But give him the start of an inning, and he's gonna get you closer to JJ.
Yes, he's more of an asset if he starts an inning, but I think we have better options internally if we want to use the money somewhere else.

I'm sorry, I can't remember where I saw it but I know it's bad. May be the worst ratio on the team. He just seems like a different pitcher when the bases are empty.
