A few quick notes this morning:
1. Eric O’Flaherty’s going to Double-A West Tennessee to get things straighted out. He’ll be replaced by R.A. Dickey on the roster. I would expect that won’t be the only move in the next couple of days, as McLaren won’t want a single lefty in the pen for too long.
Arthur Rhodes isn’t ready yet, so Cesar Jimenez could get the temporary call if Bedard or Morse head for the D.L. Morse goes to the DL and Rhodes gets the call. We’ll see if he can find the juvenation machine.
2. In some fun news for me, I’ve joined FanGraphs as a blogger for their main page, and will be writing about random baseball musings over there on a daily basis. My first post over there is up now, and I should have another one up later tonight. If you haven’t already, you should add fangraphs to your daily reading material – the data is invaluable, and now David Appelman is adding written content to make a great site even better.
3. We’re beginning to put together the next USSM/LL event in Seattle, and the current date is the afternoon of Saturday, June 14th. Jeff Sullivan and I will both be flying into town, and Derek should be around as well. Plus, you know us, we’ll bring some other cool people to the party as well. Details will come later, but for now, hold June 14th on your calendar if you can – it should be a fun time.
I’ll be doing the KJR gig with Groz this afternoon at 2:20. I’m sure we’ll have plenty to talk about. Never mind.
