Not to put it too subtley, but Bally is much better off not being here than being here. He's a good guy, and has a great arm, but this team really needs bullpen pieces that can be sent back and forth to Syracuse, and there will be major league teams that will give him a chance to stick in the majors. If not, while the pay isn't as good, the Tigers organization still values him, and spending time in Toledo near family is a good consolation prize. With this team, he'd be squeezed out as soon as Lidge is ready or the mystery veteran is acquired. It'd probably be great on one level to be with Strasburg, Stammen, and the guys he knows to reconnect when the team is doing well, but on another level he needs to move on to an organization that he can get a good career path.
