I like this move for its obvious low risk high reward potential. Here is a guy thats been there and done that. I would bet that we will need him at some point down the stretch. Our starters are the week link so bullpen depth will be key in our ability to compete...... another DD scrap heap move? Maybe, but you cannever have enough pitching depth.....

I don't expect much. I think his success with the Padres was a combination of playing in the national league, playing in PETCO Park, and playing in the prime of his career. He's never succeeded anywhere else. But, it can't hurt. Baltimore is paying him the major league minimum.
