Carp’s in San Diego with the team
Initially you would think the move was to replace Branyan who’s going to leave for his grandfather’s funeral on Thursday. But Wakamatsu said Branyan would be placed on the bereavement list.
(Update — Baker’s run it too)
There are other possibilities, if he’s activated: Sweeney, for all his good character and supposed clubhouse-osity, has done very little for the team so far this year on the field, and seems the obvious positional drop if they’re making moves.
Dave adds the actual move: Bedard to the DL. I hate to say I told you so, but, this is why they should have traded him two weeks ago.
