After all this time, waivers still make my head spin.
As far as I can tell, the Padres wanted to send over Heath Bell to the Giants but the league wasn’t into that idea, so they’ve sent him to raise goats in Peru instead.
Sorry, the possibility of photo shopping that one was too good to pass up.
There is the distinct possibility that my brain is a little shaken and jumbled due to the volume of earthquakes (three in twelve hours in the Bay Area, people) and I misunderstood the stories I read. So don’t quote me on that.
In other news, the Padres are still killing the Giants. San Francisco has actually started to display some potential for getting runners across home plate (!) but at the same time the pitching has started letting in seven runs, so they are still losing. ::takes long, deep breath::
Beltran is off the disabled list, which is good news and I hope to see some flashes of brilliance from him. I am a little skeptical of the plan to have Schierholtz play through a foot fracture and more than a little worried about the number 5 spot (Runzler starting? Again? Really?) but we shall see how it will play out.
The Dog Days are nearing an end and I am ready for the stretch run. I mean, ready-ish. Having Bell in the bullpen would make a little ready-er.
