I hope the Rockies kept the receipt

Jose Vizcaino has been visiting the trainer’s room out in Colorado with a sore elbow, a season after racking up a career high 77 appearances.

Aside from the obvious Joe Torre implications, it’s also interested to note that The Viz is referred to as Colorado’s “top offseason acquisition” and they gave him the largest contract they’ve ever given a reliever.

But this just shows that Cashman made the right move this offseason: he let an overworked reliever go, signed a more durable one in Hawkins for half the money, and got a sandwich pick in the upcoming draft since Vizcaino was offered arbitration.
