Brian Bruney Is Pissed, and Rightfully So

JerseySenior Analyst IMarch 4, 2009

Brian Bruney wants to be on the Team USA roster. At first thought, that seems a little farfetched. As a Yankee fan, I know Bruney is good, but he's not exactly a household name. Surely there are better American relievers out there.

Turns out, Bruney's got a right to be upset. With Joe Nathan, B.J. Ryan, and Brian Fuentes bowing out of the tournament, a few other relievers got to replace them. Heath Bell was a decent choice, especially considering he's going to be a closer this season.

Joel Hanrahan may not be the best closer, but he does save games for the Nationals, so he's a decent option, too. But then the team selected LaTroy Hawkins.

LaTroy f***ing Hawkins?!

Dude, Brian Bruney. He's a beast. Give the man a shot.
