2003 Platoon splits are real, but they donít affect everyone equally. Your lefty specialist is the guy you want to count on against Jim Thome and Ryan Klesko, but there are plenty of left-handers out there who arenít qualified to pitch against these guys, or anyone else in a major league uniform. Being left-handed doesnít make you any more valuable if you canít get anyone out. There are plenty of right-handers whoíll be happy to fill that role.
2001 Twenty years ago, you would have just about given up on seeing young Nicaraguans in the major leagues. It will be kind of fun to see which teams start ramping up Nicaraguan academies in the years to come. Oswaldo Mairena isnít going to make anyone forget El Presidente or the Cold War, but heís a perfectly serviceable left-handed spot reliever with a big-bending curve.
2000 Mairena could end up in the Bronx this year when Allen Watson returns to earth, freeing up the #2 left-hander spot in the bullpen. He throws a big curveball that makes him tough on left-handed hitters, and complements it with a fastball that can reach 90 mph. Heíll be effective in a restricted role initially and will eventually move up to be one of the better relievers in the league.
