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?

The 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!
