Can I getta Amen!!!!?????
A follow up to my last posting:According to Rubin, Parnell has had no major setback but is dealing with arm fatigue after returning from Tommy John surgery.However, a source told Mike Puma of the New York Post that Parnell had the choice to either go to the DL or get designated for assignment (Aug. 18
I don't believe that comment from Puma at all - a) because it would be a violation of the labor agreement; and b) why would Parnell fight going on the DL to rest his arm? Third, if we DFA'ed him, we would lose him as I bet someone would take him - hell - even shaky he is better than 4 of the relievers in the Nats' bullpenThe conversation was likely "Bobby - you aren't pitching well and you likely need a rest for a few weeks to get your arm right for the final stretch and the playoffs." And he said "OK - sounds like a plan"I hate when reporters try to manufacture drama
In other news (or not news) Mack has been around the block and knows what he is talking about as he called this two days ago!
