Hold The Phone!

Was just having some fun on Baseball Primer, checking up on Rancho Bernardo High School alum Hank Blalock in their Rangers reports, came across THIS:

-Carlos Almanzar was a much sought after minor league free agent this past off-season, thanks to a fine year at AAA Louisville. He saved 23 games, posted a 3.50 ERA and tallied a 54/3 K/BB ration in 46 innings. Almanzar is all but certain to spend time with Texas this season.

I almost read right over that, but then smartly did a double-take. Padre fans, remember this guy? I'd almost forgotten, but what remains is bad memories. That blurb sounds pretty promising, but I don't know. Maybe it was a classic AAAA season for a Padre castoff. Remember George Arias, anyone? He's doing well... in Japan!




Kevin Towers is pretty adept at piecing together solid relief squads, but when he misses, he misses badly.

Have fun, Texas!
