You asked for pitching???

My initial reaction in our recent attempts to bolster the Dodger pitching staff has simply been laughter in disgust. The same type of laughter when you first heard Barry Bonds deny using steroids. However, after witnessing Troncoso, Belisario, and Sherrill repeatedly blow hold opportunities, I’m ready to welcome anybody to our bullpen who will give these three an opportunity to work things out in Albuquerque.

Here’s a snapshot of the three pitchers recently added by Colletti:

Kiko Calera – 35 yrs old from Puerto Rico – Career Stats: 14-12, 3.24 ERA, 1.196 WHIP

Most recent news bite: “Calero was released last month by the Mets after posting a 10.59 ERA in 10 appearances for their Triple-A Buffalo affiliate.”

Jesus Colome – 32 yrs old from Dominican Republic – Career Stats: 19-27, 4.69 ERA, 1.506 WHIP

Most recent news bite: “Jesus Colome, who struggled so badly with his control in Sunday’s loss to the Angels, was designated for assignment (by the Mariners).”

Claudio Vargas – 32 yrs old from Dominican Republic – Career Stats: 48-40, 4.83 ERA, 1.432 WHIP

Most recent news bite: “The Brewers also released right-hander Claudio Vargas, who was 1-0 with a 7.32 ERA in 17 appearances.”

Do any of these pitchers have what it takes to script a fairytale comeback in this last stage of their careers and help lead the Dodgers to the World Series?
