So Long, Shawn Tolleson, For Reasons Unknown

tolleson_2013-04-12I don’t get it. I really don’t. And since I’m in a coffee shop far from home, perhaps there’s been some good explanation I’ve missed. I sure hope so, because otherwise, the Dodgers just allowed a talented young reliever who piled up strikeouts and grounders get claimed on waivers by Texas for what seems to be no good reason.

With 8 empty roster spots, space isn’t an issue. Yes, they need to add a few minor leaguers today. No, it won’t be 8, and even if it was, Justin Sellers & Javy Guerra exist.

Oh, and Shawn Tolleson is known to be one of Clayton Kershaw‘s best friends – you know, the guy you are attempting to convince to stay with you long term.

Maybe he’s hopelessly injured. Maybe it’s something else. For now.. confounding.

I'm still dumbfounded why they would put the gas can on waivers and add Baez who nobody really knows if he can pitch or not

If Alfredo Silverio comes back to us from the Marlins does he need to be protected from Rule 5 again?  Not sure how that works.

watching Colbert interview Santorum, and hearing absolute silence in the audience was hilarious.  I hope this isn't too political.  I am commenting about the show itself.

could the Rangers at least give us Josh Lindblom back as a consolation prize?

@capnsparrow Aren't you the one who lobbied for Manny? I do agree, the moves this club makes sometimes like not going after Acta are puzzling

@Tycho Blue I thought he stayed with them since he was on the DL (and the 40 man) all year.

@DBrim @PagansOedipalComplex apparently the tattoo prince has on his neck that says "prince" in korean is actually a derogatory spelling of "prince" meaning little spoiled brat, basically
