    These moves are not intended to be organizational changing moves. They are rolls of the dice that cost almost nothing. Hector makes a good point about guys who were castoffs elsewhere that proved to be valuable pieces with Pads. Does this always happen? Of course not, and most of the time a guy is who he is no matter the uniform on his back. But nothing ventured nothing gained in at least trying. If just one of these guys sticks, that is one less guy you would have paid higher dollars for in free agent market for maybe same results.

    everybody starts somewhere, remember when the Padres drafted Mike Adams, Scott Linebrink and Heath Bell in the first round? No, these guys were dumpster dives that had shown enough ability to give them a chance, and they did.

    Raymon – This has nothing to do with making a run of any kind this year. I see it as simply a chance to accumulate players with generally limited MLB experience that someone else has already invested the time and expense to develop and give them to try out. If one or two of these pieces work out, then it really cost you nothing, and if not again no loss. You can do this when you have guys on your 40 man roster that you are not afraid to part with, or can make room with 60 day DL guys. It;s about possibly adding depth for next year as far as I can tell.

    Hey Bob let me ask you this. This late in the season whats the point of Jed aquiring all these arms and bench players. I mean I don’t think we are equipt (if thats how you spell it) to making a run.
