Enough, or some warnings start getting handed out, OK?

Drop the crusades over terms we can or cannot use, and focus on injury news.

Time to sign Kimbrel

I don't care if he's good.  He comes from the Jose Valverde/ Rafael Soriano School of Irritating Closer Mannerisms.   Plus he's 31 and wants a long-term contract for a ton of money - for pitching 3 innings a week, only in the ninth.   There's a reason the Red Sox, who are both smart and badly need a reliever, aren't paying him what he wants.

I could not survive a season of watching him looking in for the sign.  Winning isn't that important.

If I'm reading the stats correctly, Kimbrel had a K/W rate of 3.1; Doolittle, 10.0.  I think I'd rather have Doolittle pitching.

Strain/inflammation.

I mean, that doesnt mean he doesnt suck, just means that he didnt re-tear his UCL.

Allegedly, I think

Thank goodness it wasn't the Achilles!  And thank goodness we signed Dozier.

You lace a ligament through holes in the bone in there instead of a tendon with it's normal attachments, something weird is bound to happen.

There is no depth at center.

he's a decent fielder, that's about it.  Adams is starting in LF today.

There is depth.  They have Robles and Taylor.
