This would be fantastic news if Fuentes didn't suck too.
Agreed. You're basically saying that we're deliberately going to rely on Scrabble, Browning and Fuentes to get righthanders out as well as lefties since our "25th man" is now a guy who was at AA a few weeks ago (Rosenthal). I think Rosenthal might be able to be handle higher leverage situations but we won't know for awhile. Matheny will ease him into that kind of a role. And that means we'll see a lot of the lefties in late innings against righties when guys like Boggs aren't available.
I don't think that Marte belonged on the roster any more, but keeping 3 lefties is not a good long term solution. We really need to make a trade for a quality (Dotel-esque) right handed reliever so we can push either Fuentes, if he doesn't work out, or Browning back down and then let Rosenthal have the time he needs to show his value in low-leverage situations.
