The push for Tampa’s Jason Hammel has not stopped. The Rockies like his age and power arm. If unable to make a deal — and one could still come down next week — Juan Morillo is favored to make the team over Matt Belisle for the final bullpen spot.
Cannot blame them. When I think about power, I think about Jason Hammel. His pitches, that is. Power curve. Power fastball. Also throws the powerball. That's a joke, based off the lottery term. You know, when you have a chance of getting lucky (therefore winning some unbelievable amount of cash) but in the end just end up with disappointment and dispair? Yeah, Jason Hammel throws that, and throws it damn well.
