  2. Irabu cut by Texas

    http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/clubhouse?team=tex (toward the bottom) RHP Hideki Irabu was released Nov. 13. Irabu went 3-8 with a 5.74 ERA, pitching only until July 15 because of blood clots in his lungs. But he also had a team-high 16 saves. He began the season as a starter but was tried as a closer following an injury to Jeff Zimmerman and the struggles of John Rocker. maybe Irabu can find a spot in our bullpen... Godzilla and the Fat Toad, together at last ;)
