Bam Ba Lam

It should have been Joel Piñeiro, not J.C. Romero, in my opinion. I’ll just imagine that mobile phone distortion confounded Terry Francona and we’ll soon learn that it’s the former Seattle clearing out his locker. Piñeiro, Romero; a few dropped syllables make all the difference. After all, Fangraphs has Piñeiro with negative Win Probability Added (WPA of -0.60) while Romero’s is 0.48.

Oh, it’s totally official? Well, then. Mike Timlin is back on the Red Sox and Romero has been designated for assignment. As long as Francona remembers it’s 2007, not 2003, I’m not terribly worried.


The Biggest Loser is definitely Pinata, I mean, Pineiro. However, if you've got to cut a guy making $1.6mn or $4mn, the lowest waste of money probably goes first...

Good call about the dollars of the move, something that shows it's less about good sense but rather just cents.
