Octavio Dotel wants to win. He doesn’t care that the Marlins are interested in him.
“I like it here,” Dotel said. “But I want to have more winning games. The past month, it wasn’t that good for us…. I’ll be honest with you: I don’t want to be over here if we’re going to play that way…. But if we’re playing close games and fighting and trying hard like this week, yeah, of course, I want to be here. I love this town. I love this ballpark. It’s good for me as a pitcher.”
Dejan described Dotel’s feelings in this post. It sounds to me like Dotel is sending a message. Perhaps he is tired of the losing already? Heh, Octavio you don’t know how bad this pain has been brother. We appreciate the 15 of 16 save opportunities you have converted while holding the opposition to a .119 average.
While you’re not busy saving games, why not fire up those veteran teammates? We need someone to be the veteran leader of this team and at RumBunter we nominate you.
