A sad goodbye to Corey Wade

Is any else watching the box scores showing how well Corey Wade is pitching for the Yankees, and dying a little inside?

I am.

Corey was pitching brilliantly at Durham, with an era under 1.30 and a sparkling SO/W ratio.  Considering the struggles of the Rays bullpen, and the fact that Wade has had success at the major league level, I kept expecting the Rays to give him a chance.  Say, for Andy Sonnanstine, who never pitches?

Instead, and probably at his request, the Rays released Wade, who signed with the Yankees.  Five near-perfect outlings later, Wade has become a steady arm in the Yankees shaky pen.  Yes, it's early, and 5 outings does not a season make.  But considering our bullpen's struggles, wouldn't we rather he be doing this with a TB on his hat?
