...if you want a good draft choice in 2012.
Yep, that would be Chad "laughing all the way to the bank" Durbin. The signing that none of us liked is looking really good so far...if you are looking to get a high draft choice.
While this is surely a plus, I still rather give those innings to a rookie reliever.
I can see the talk shows in Cleveland now. "Well, it's 4:30 in the afternoon at WELW and Chad Durbin still sucks".
Meanwhile, Aaron Laffey, who we dumped to give us a roster spot that we could have saved by not signing Durbin, has pitched 5 scoreless innings on one hit, one walk and 3 Ks.
Really not a good signing compounded by giving Laffey away for nothing. Geez!
