I liked Medina when I saw him in the GCL.

Now I'm confused. It's like they gave up 2 players (Pomeranz DFA'd). Pomeranz had great numbers last year.

I'm not so confused as asking myself if there is some depth issue at Bowie or Norfolk. Or, is this making room in the lower minors as well? This is not a major acquisition or filling a need to my eyes.

I don't like the fact we DFA'd Pomeranz. He is almost surely to get picked up. Defintily would rather have Pomeranz over Valencia, Navarro, Esposito. Navarro has pretty good numbers in the minors, I doubt the Piartes see anything in him(contributing in the major leagues) if they just traded him for a rookie ball pitcher.
****Just read that Pomeranz is a free agent from Roch Kubatko. If this is true, we should re-sign him.

That's a head scratcher for me too. I saw him as a ML ready RH reliever that would be one phone call away at AAA.
