Rearranging the Deck Chairs

So first we ditch Rob Bowen to make room for another pitcher on the roster.

Then we trade Bowen (and a minor-league pitcher) for Jason Kendall.

You have got to be kidding me.

Kendall, basically, is the catching version of Jacques Jones. Teams in contention don't need one Jacques Jones, let alone two.

Forcing myself to look on the bright side, I've heard Kendall is in the last year of his contract, so he should be gone at the end of the year. And can he suck any more than Bowen did?

Don't answer that...

By the way, Jerry Blevins, the LHP we sent to Oakland as part of the deal, is 3-2 with nine saves and a 1.02 ERA while splitting time in Daytona and Tennessee this year. I bet Sully is able to get in at least one Dontrelle Willis reference in time to make tomorrow's paper...
