Braves looking for bullpen help

Major League Baseball News

As long as they don’t go looking for expensive mediocrities, okay. The story doesn’t mention Kerry Ligtenberg. Did something happen to him?

    I mentioned this in another thread, but I think Ligtenberg is about the most unappreciated reliever in the game. Career adjusted ERA+ of 142, I believe. Pitches well year after year. With Spooneybarger gone, they need to re-sign him to close when they have to put Smoltz in the rotation to replace Paul Byrd or Mike Hampton.

    I just keep waiting for the season that Leo’s magic touch with has beens and never have beens will wear off. He seems to have a knack for positioning guys in the pen to be successful in a specific role. This season has the makings of a real adventure.

    Yeah, Ligtenberg was non-tendered. Latest I read the Twins were looking at him.
