First bad omen? We're signing Joes off the scrap pile

Look: I don't know anything about Jose D. Ortegano, except that he's 23, throws LH, is a starter, and has a cool-sounding name, if you remove the middle initial.

Oh, yeah, and that we signed him from Atlanta's discard pile today.

OK, let's all agree it's good to know somebody Bronix wonks are Googling everybody who turns up in the neighborhood recylcling bin.

But... with the game's largest payroll and a solid farm system -- as we are told -- shouldn't teams be picking the corn from our stool?

Not complainin.' Just sayin.'
