Wonder if anyone will claim him. :-?

Now to see who gets the rotation spot. Either Rodriguez or Benoit.

I like this move ;-D . Either of the two guys should be an improvement over Drese who's really stunk it up this year.

Was his sinker not sinking? Because sinkerballers are supposed to be better options in hitters' parks, since they keep the ball on the ground. Anyway, didn't he just sign a pretty nice deal in the offseason? If that's the case, I doubt anybody'd want to take the contract on.

Ball was either moving with him having zero control, or not moving at all.

As to his contract, $1.8 million next year. Not a crazy deal (not great either), so someone might chance it.
