Buccos negotiating with Dan Kolb

Hey, it can't hurt.

The Bucs have been talking for a few days with Kolb's agent.

Kolb's a hard throwing righty reliever, previously an All-Star closer with Milwaukee, and recently has bounced between Atlanta and back to the Brewers.

And while his numbers have not been as good as compared to previous years, his signing can do nothing more than fuel more competition with an already good bullpen.

Let's see if Littlefield can actually get Kolb to sign on the dotted line.

No...it can't hurt...unless you need the money down the line for someone else...

Kolb is a bum...who really hasn't been ANY good since 2004...

since his 39 Save year...in which he struggled down the line...

He's had a grand total of 11 saves...and hasn't been a closer since a third of the season in 2005 was over.

I don't know how competative he'll make the bullpen...

I'll give him this...his ERA, for the most part, was under 4 last season...minus May and June...

so who knows...if Kolb pans out...you have a decent set up guy, who can stop on occasion...
