Bye-bye, Manny Parra

The Brewers non-tendered LHP Manny Parra today, bringing an end to a long, frustrating, and painful relationship. Parra was once a big deal as a prospect, possessing the swing-and-miss stuff that makes scouts drool (and even throwing a perfect game in AAA). Once expected to anchor the rotation along with Yovani Gallardo, Parra flamed out as a starter and didn't fare much better in 2012 as a reliever. While inconsistency isn't uncommon amongst relievers, Parra took it to new levels. This five-game sequence pretty much says it all:

Good luck Manny, wherever you end up.
