Bad moon(bat) on the rise

One of my favorite headcases, pitcher Julian Tavarez is back in the majors, signing as a reliever with the Braves. You might remember Tavarez when his traveling road show hit your town, especially if you root for one of the now 10 he has has played for: Indians, Giants, Rockies, Cubs, Marlins, Pirates, Cardinals, Red Sox, and Brewers.

The Sox let him go after he put up a 6.39 ERA in nine games this season. Then the Brewers let him go after he put up a 8.58 ERA in seven games for them.

But the numbers lie. This guy is worth having around, especially if you need a pugilist in your bullpen.
