Strange days indeed. Most peculiar, mama. Whoa!
Maroth is obviously a done deal. He’ll start Monday in New York. Brad Thompson goes to the ‘pen for the weekend. Kip Wells still starting Sunday, Wellemeyer still on Tuesday. Wednesday TBA, though I’d guess Thompson slots back in for that game.
The weirder part today is in the bullpen. According to a release from the team this afternoon, Tyler Johnson is on the disabled list with biceps tendinitis. However, Johnson was listed on the lineup card. TLR and assistant GM John Mozeliak both say he’s NOT, in fact, on the DL yet. Muddling things even further, Tyler said that the discomfort is more in his shoulder than in his forearm.
Just another day on the carousel. This team is definitely keeping us busy.
-M, digging the new White Stripes album.
