BFD.... Check out these Cam Bedrosian highlights...                      

6'10"? That's like three Nates.

Any time you can work “flummoxed” and his nickname “The Slegend” into an article, even AW can smile...

I’m shocked no one has expressed concern over PTBNL.

Being the trade is with the Rays, I would not be surprised if it included International Bonus Pool money to mitigate the prospect cost.  They love them foreigners and are good at picking them.

I'd say the bullpen is starting to shape up nicely.  Fangraphs lists our current bullpen as:

Iglesias, Mayers, Pena, Buttrey, Claudio, Guerra, Rivera, Barria.

Lists Siegers, Reyes, Bard, Quijada, Keller, and Reed as in AAA.

I suspect Barria will open up in the rotation, and likely Siegers will open up with the big league club.

Still would like to see one more legit bullpen option, a la Rosenthal, but I think the bullpen is looking pretty decent regardless.

Maddon has not managed Slegers before but he was a Tampa manager. Slegers was college team mate of Schwarber who was managed by Maddon.

Also, Maddon once got a Big Mac from a drive-through McDonald's in Poughkeepsie, NY, and Slegers once got food poisoning from a Burger King in Monkey's Eyebrow, KY, so they're connected by their love of fast food, too.

Except Minasian came from the Braves where they have been very active in the International market.

How does every one feel about how the bullpen is shaping up?

It's certainly looking better. Will this guy be a free agent at the end of the season too? I read that only Trout, Rendon, Upton, and now Ohtani, are signed past 2021. That is madness. Minasian and his team will have a ton of work in the offseason.

I'm a bit confused. With stats like these, why would they trade him? Hopefully, I'm just looking a gift horse in the mouth.

I wondered about that too.

TB has an abundance of riches at both the MLB and MILB levels.  Slegers is an intriguing arm, but for a team like the Rays, they face a roster crunch and just needed to move on.  Likely they'll get something useful from us, such as international bonus money, that they'll parlay into some super prospect later.

For us, Slegers immediately serves as an upgrade over what we had.  I don't think he is going to be a stud reliever, but he should be a very competent middle reliever at the minimum, and for us, that is an upgrade.

We are sending half of the crab cakes we got in Cobb trade
