Braves - Acquired Dotel
Atlanta Braves - Acquired P Octavio Dotel from the Kansas City Royals for P Kyle Davies.
Davies still has promise, but at this point, the Braves are just tired of waiting for him to be a solid #4 starter, similar to the Jason Marquis situation. This is part of Atlanta’s massive restructuring of the bullpen, of the type that’s more seen in fantasy sports when an owner gets mad at his ####### fantasy team because the Giants never let Tiki Barber score a ####### touchdown so you end up losing to Gleeman by like 40 points because Chester Taylor gets 3 ####### touchdowns. Not that this ever happened to me.
It’s been a while since Dotel was one of the top relievers in baseball, but he was solid for the Royals after a disappointing cameo with the 2006 Yankees and should help the team down the stretch. Dotel’s 2005-2007 innings combined still don’t make up half of his innings pitched in 2001 or 2002. Good move by the Royals. Unlike Dave Littlefield, Dayton Moore at least understands what his team doesn’t need going forward from today.
