The Luis Ayala experiment is totally over

Meant to mention this earlier but, oh well, the news is the same.  Luis Ayala decided he could do better on his own.

On Saturday, Ayala was outrighted and he opted for free agency.

---

Ayala appeared in 10 games for the Marlins, and he threw 7 2/3 innings. He struggled, posting an 0-3 record with an 11.74 ERA. He opened the season with the Twins, appearing in 28 games while tossing 32 1/3 innings. With Minnesota, he was 1-2 with a 4.18 ERA.

 For whatever reason, Ayala just didn't perform when he was wearing a Marlins uniform and while we wish him the best -- he definitely won't be missed.

I seriously doubt he will be able to land another job for the remainder of the season.  That is assuming his agent isn't in possession of some pictures of a GM playing golf with Satan.  And no, I don't mean the hockey player.
