Insult to injury: Patton suspended 25 games for amphetamine use

5 posts in this topic

Suspended without pay! There's the money for Choo.

That is the outside the box thinking we need for this organization.

this isn't good news, but it's not devastating. Patton isn't a major piece of the BP. he probably wouldn't have appeared in more than 1/3 of those games. and he only pitches 1 inning a game, if that. Buck would have used him in 8-9 of those games. the slack can be picked up by a fill in, or just let the other relievers cover those innings.

They have TJ, who could do the same job.
