Ya trout isn't going to get traded any time soon.

Bridwell is complete trash. Has an 8.68 ERA in AAA. Bringing him up will be the same result as Oliver Drake

It probably won't hurt to see what he can do out of the BP at this point. Who knows is stuff may play better out of the BP. Even Wade Davis was terrible as a starter!

Yup.  Before he got hurt again, I would have considered moving Richards to the pen too.

Love it. Don't forget about Thaiss.  I think EYJ and Ben Revere are good ballplayers.

I haven't forgotten about Thasis, It's just that Pujol's isn't going anywhere and the decision comes down to Thasis or JMF. I would say it's a personal decision on who to choose. for me i would go with JMF because of his versatility and  his ability to work counts and take walks. Than again Thasis can probably represent the same value in his bat, its a tough decision...

Reasons why i believe that Bridwell may be an good option in the Bp are;

 1. His fastball, Cutter/ Slider and plus change-up will work better in a Bp role

2. His ability to get fast outs

3. He won't have to worry about going 5-6 inning, imply he can go 120% from the first pitch.

His Fb/ Cutter velocity last year was 90-94, with an average of 92. I've seen him hit 95 a few times, change-up is a plus pitch with ab average velocity of  85.

Now if he moves into an 1 or 2 inning role, he should be able to maintain the mid 90s FB velo, making his change that much better. He been reported to hit as high as 97
