I only post this because it is out there and I've got to think it will have an eventual impact on the Bulls. I’ll leave it to those more knowledgeable than I to make sense of it. The Rays claimed off waivers a catcher in the San Diego system named Jose Lobaton and assigned him to Montgomery. The puzzle is that they put him on the 40-man roster. But maybe you have to do that if you’re trying to get someone through the waiver system (if I'm showing my ignorance surely someone will correct me).
Here’s the odd part: The Rays now have five catchers on their 40-man roster (Navarro, Hernandez, our John Jaso, re-habbing Shawn Riggans, and the new guy, Jose Labaton). Here’s what makes it even weirder: Not one of them appears to be a top quality major league catcher. OK, I like Michel Hernandez and would love to have him in Durham, but how good is he, really? Hard to tell with his lack of playing time. So you’ve got to think that a couple of those guys are not long for the Rays.
