The Yankees have a few holes to fill, and instead of making big a big splash like they used to, names like Rivera and Hafner are ruling the day. The Padres continue to add arms to their stable, most recently Freddy Garcia, but it's Tim Stauffer who will be garnering most of the attention in this piece. The Angels brought in a guy to work the 9th inning this year that didn't throw a single big league pitch last season even though they already have a guy who appears to be a fella who can handle 9th inning duties if he's called upon. All of that plus the plight of Michael Bourn (where will he sign), Michael Pineda (when will he be healthy) and Kelly Johnson (should you pay attention on draft day to the newest Ray).
“Sometimes you win. Sometimes you lose. Sometimes…it rains.” Truer words were never spoken, especially if you were one of the many that was sucked into the hype of the C.J. Wilson/Yu Darvish match-up that was supposed to take place on Friday night. Though it was hardly Sandy Koufax vs Don Larsen, people were building the drama with constant talk of “the pitcher who left them and the guy who took his place.” For fans of the game, it was a marquee match-up, but for fantasy owners, it was really just another start.
