"This week, the A’s packed their bullpen, trading for Adam Kolarek, bringing back Yusmeiro Petit, and signing Sergio Romo. None of those names are going to drive talk radio, but collectively they create a very high floor for the bullpen, give Bob Melvin a lot of different looks with which to work, and all told will make less than $6 million guaranteed."
