More Movin'

Here's a deeply technical issue that goes to the heart of team management: How in the heck do you get these guys into the right uniform?

Readers will recall a round of moves a few days ago. Then a few more while the Bulls were down in Georgia. Yesterday's flurry, however, punched a couple of real holes in the Bulls lineup even if they were anticipated.
  • Catcher Chris Gimenez, one of WDBB’s favorites, is off to the Rays. Here’s hoping he gets some ABs with the Rays and helps them get past their current struggles. 
  • RHP Josh Lueke, as expected, is also off to the Rays.
  • RHP Juan Sandoval, who had some time with the Bulls earlier this year, is up from Montgomery. He made a spot start last night and did just fine.
  • LHP Braulio Lara, who appeared in 45 games with Montgomery this year, made his AAA debut last night and pitched three solid innings. Stats.
I think, but am not sure, that Luke Scott is gone after finishing his rehab round.

In the oddity column, former Bull (former just about everyone) Delmon Young was promoted from Montgomery to the Rays. Wonder how that’s going to work out?

For those interested in the technical side of what's going on, take a look at this piece from The Process Report.

Is anyone really interested in what happened last night? Other than Trinity College football pre-empting the Bulls game on the radio? I didn't think so. But we should note Sandoval and Lara and Merrill Kelly looked just fine.
