Fogg, 33, appeared in 24 games, all but 1 in relief, with the Rockies last season, going 0-2 with a 3.74 ERA (123 ERA+) and 27/20 K/BB ratio in 45 2-3 innings. The right-hander was released from Mets camp last week after suffering an injury to a muscle in his side. Taubenheim, a 27 righty, pitched for Triple-A Indianapolis (Pirates) in ’09.
Beerleaguer: Somehow, between 2002 and 2008, there was always a team willing to give Fogg 30 games to showcase his suckitude in all its splendor. He doesn't get strikeouts and he doesn't necessarily have pinpoint command. So he's not a great option for the bullpen, either. And before you get excited by that 3.74 bullpen ERA, note the .197 BABIP. At best, he's an insurance policy capable of a 5.50 ERA. Wouldn't you rather try to catch lightening in a bottle with a youngster if it came to it?
Beerleaguer holds a slight edge over Todd Zolecki in The Phield. Time to pour it on. If you haven't voted, now is the time. [Vote]
