Take 'er easy, Dude
I’ll update this in some more depth this evening in my notebook, but John Gall has been released so that he can go play in Korea.
From a baseball standpoint, it’s not necessarily a huge deal, as Gall didn’t appear to figure much in the organization’s plans. Personally, I’m delighted for Gall.
It became quite clear that he needed a change of scenery, and I found myself hoping he would be traded — not in order to get anything in return, but to give him a fresh start somewhere. This should do the trick. He’ll make some money in Korea, hopefully hit the ball well and have another line on his resume for when he comes back.
I don’t ever expect Gall will be a big league star. He may not even be a starter. But I think he’s good enough to have a spot on a Major League roster, and I hope he gets it.
