This guy was hit hard of late so he was dfa'd by the A's... He has an outstanding k/bb ratio. It would be ridiculous if we didn't make a run at this dude. This guy probably would be a #3 or 4 on this rotation even without the perennial Ollie meltdown/Maine DL trip. The bottom line is... We need help from guys with experience. Takahasi appears to be an excellent find. But, we still need at least one more (assuming Niese isn't gone long). I think we can all forget about getting Oswalt. He's a country boy with a large price tag and the Stro's will want someone like Mejia (which is laughable).
