Pretty stupid move by the Marlins in my opinion. He would be a great pickup for us.

Are you AA?
Are you seeking approval for this deal?

If I were a GM, Rauch would probably be the last guy I would want to invite into my office to try and politely explain why he was being DFAed.

Farrell suffered a dislocated jaw while attempting to restrain pitcher Jon Rauch from going after umpire Alfonso Marquez, during a game on July 2, 2011.

Or have to restrain him from fighting someone else.

I'll never understand front offices overreacting to 15 innings of shit luck.
Lol so true. He's pretty much on a completely different level (statistically) compared to his Jays go around.

Rauch has a 4.23 xFIP, he's only getting unlucky to an extent.

That's basically what you expect from Jon Rauch though. His career xFIP is 4.36. DFA'ing a guy more or less pitching to his career means is dumn. As a FO, you can't look at ERA over 15 innings.

A career 4.36 xFIP guy probably isn't really worth a roster spot in relief anyways, though, so I don't see what the big deal is.

The Marlins shouldn't do that, but the Marlins do not care about your puny "sabermetrics" and "good points" and "winning teams." They care about crushing the of dreams and stepping on the souls of Miami-Dade county tax payers.

If I was a Miami-Dade tax payer I'd make a home out of that hilarious statue out in the outfield. At least than I could say that I was paying my taxes and getting something out of it.
