    Can't say I'll miss him that much after his performances thus far this year. Cool guy but still.

    Well, I'm all for it I think. Much easier to keep MacFarland and fit in a guy like Johnson down the road. You have 4 bench players now, you don't have to option someone unnecessarily. We get a young lefty.

    Best of luck to Luis. He seems like a good guy.

    They have been trying to get rid of him since Spring. I think Hunter will have a good rest of the year. Adair ,the hated is working on him keeping the ball down.

    Meh move but I'm not sure why unless jones is ready to contribute now in the MLB, our Bullpen might be used heavy this month the way the starters are pitching their 1st time through the rotation, going to need all the relief arms we can get.

    Without knowing anything about Chris Jones, who I assume is probably just an org. type guy, I can't really say I'm a fan of this. I understand he was one of the last guys in the pen, but he was still pretty valuable down there last year.

    I'll miss Luis. He was durable and effective for long parts of last year.

    I hope the bullpen remains effective so we don't regret this.

    Yeah, As I have often stated, I think Ayala needs a clean inning and that our bullpen is not built to use him in that role.

    I was concerned that his hangover and dehydration might keep a trade from occurring. Glad it did not.

    3.90 in AA last year. Doesn't really matter if he's good, though, this was just about getting anything for a guy on a cheap 1-year deal who they wanted off the roster in favor of younger guys.

    DD had to trade Ayala because BS refused to only bring him in to start clean innings.
