The one time you want to see a guy get claimed...

I disagree. I think this is great. He still has some life in him. He will get his confidence and mindset back. I'm not saying he will be a star... but he will help us prolong some of our minor league pitching from coming up and giving them more time to develop and stay in a winning atmosphere in the minors.

There's no way this is a real post. Troll for sure...not biting. Nobody is that retarded.

Some people realize that pitching depth is important, especially when your org has already had 3 or 4 guys from the AAA and MLB levels go down for the year (White, Ely, Owens, somebody else maybe I'm forgetting)... Humber was truly awful, yes, but hopefully he can regroup at OKC and at the very least be insurance. Best-case scenario, he reinvents himself as a righty-killer setup guy.
