Marlins add MacDougal to bullpen picture

Feb 18, 2010, 7:59 PM EDT

The Miami Herald’s Barry Jackson reports that the Marlins and Mike MacDougal have agreed to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.
MacDougal, 32, had to a take a minor league deal despite saving 20 games in 21 chances for the Nationals last season. He had a 3.60 ERA in 50 innings for the team, but his 31/31 K/BB ratio left less reason for optimism.
The Marlins will treat him as insurance for Leo Nunez in the closer’s role. Nunez was 23-for-27 after replacing Matt Lindstrom in the ninth inning last year. He finished with a 4.06 ERA in 68 2/3 innings.

    Oh boy, a guy who will do for walking in runs what Kevin Gregg did for the two out bottom of the ninth gopher ball. This is a formidable collection of late-inning arsonists the Feesh have assembled. And Nunez apparently showed up in the best shape of his life – almost perfectly symmetrical and with a waistline divisible only by Pi. We really need to find that elusive even integer that will limit the damage now, folks.

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.
