If you read my blog, you probably can tell I have a slight fascination with Mark Melancon. I think he has the potential to be great. While I thought he would be called up before September, I didn't think it was going to happen again this soon. He has been promoted as of a few hours ago and it looks as if he will be joining the team in Los Angeles tomorrow. This is a great opportunity for Mark and hopefully he will show some success this time at the major league level. I am not sure if he was ready as of yet for this but the team needs a reliever after using Aceves for 3+ innings so Melancon is the man.
Hopefully the fans will have patience with him. I am excited to see him back in the big leagues.
