Some of what is being thrown around is not fair. Guys like Balester were given every chance to stick with the club but could never produce at a high enough level to stay in the Majors.
Not true...Bally 40 games as a reliever at a 3.81 ERA with 56 innin gs and 62 K's compared to 139 innings that Perry had in Detroit. Now that organization knows how to give a fair shot! Like this year...I hope the give Detwiler his fair shot and start him all year long so he doesn't have to pitch while looking over his shoul;der all the time. .
