If I'm remembering correctly there is an effect to having fire ball relievers come in after soft tossing starters. Is the reverse true? The pirates currently have about 6 guys who throw 98.. and a closer who throws 92

Just off the top of my head, I think there's a slight advantage -- short-term -- to any abrupt change in pitching style
It's for this reason I wonder about the Orioles having O'Day and Givens basically back-to-back as similar funky relievers
Very small concern but an interesting one
Pirates are clearly prioritizing reliever velocity, Melancon be damned
Do you think MIA manages to move Ozuna? Best trade partner on paper?
Jeff Sullivan
Wrong offseason, it seems like, with so many available outfielders. They have time to re-visit later
All right, I think it's time for me to get going
So thank you everybody for hanging out, and I'm sorry for what I didn't or couldn't address. We'll do it again next week at the same time, and until then, be well and have great days
So long!
