The original plan was to put [Horacio] Ramirez adrift in the ocean and let God sort it out, but upon further reflection, the Royals realized that simply releasing Ramirez back into the wild could possibly result in their hitters getting to face him at some point, a shot in the arm that the 13th-ranked Royal offense sorely needs. Also, the MLB CBA does not allow contracts to be assigned in this manner, a clause reinforced when baseball foiled Woody Woodward's plot to have Greg Hibbard garroted at an In-N-Out Burger, his corpse then being deposited into the Strait of Juan de Fuca.

Indians 8, Royals 3: Game story "Greinke handed a 3-2 lead to Horacio Ramirez starting the seventh and the left-hander immediately got in trouble." There's no part of that sentence -- Greinke having a lead, Ramirez immediately getting into trouble upon entering the game -- that wasn't 100% predictable when we all woke up yesterday morning. I'd have been less surprised if Ramirez had been magically transformed into a right-hander before the game than I would have been if he had come in and actually held the lead.

Dan Szymborski: Transaction Oracle for the Pitcher Signings

Dig those ZiPS projections! I can get on board with that. Love the historical comps, too. Also, nice Mike Jacobs reference for CubsFreak, wherever he/she is.
