2007 A not-very-special lefty specialist who had a vaguely decent season in 2005, Mike Gallo was hammered early and demoted in June. He`ll try to resuscitate his career with the Rockies.
2006 Lefty specialist, part of the grand conspiracy to make baseball unwatchable by increasing the number of pitching changes and by throwing as many pitches down and away as there are stars in the sky, praying the umpire will get bored and start calling them strikes. He was so unimpressive in spring training that the Astros started the year without a lefty in the pen, calling him up after giving up on knuckleballer Jared Fernandez. Gallo could very well turn into an effective LOOGY, but so could 4,328 other lefties.
2005 A lefty specialist who doesn't get lefties out is completely worthless. Gallo, who had the Astros' LOOGY job because… well, because he was the only lefty in the room, faced nearly 60% left-handed batters, and the lucky guys hit .286/.367/.518 off him. Not having someone better was a key element in the NLCS loss to the Cardinals. Gallo will be back in the same role in 2005, to the Astros' detriment. Purpura should keep an eye on the waiver wire throughout March.
