    Do the Bucs come north with Scott Olsen as the only southpaw out of the pen? Or has Donnie Veal worked out his control problems and makes the team by default?

      Unfortunately, Veal won’t be ready. As of now it looks like Olsen is the guy. Burres is non-roster invite. Watson is long shot. Gotta believe a move is in the works to address this situation for example, Doumit might bring a lefty.

    Doumit won’t bring much, unless its to an AL team.
