Daniel Cabrera. To the bullpen. You can't make this stuff up.
The question: "Is it possible for the Nationals' bullpen to be any worse?" is answered with an emphatic: Yes!
We're all for removing Cabrera from the rotation, but sticking him in the bullpen? In Long relief? Really? Why not just eat the rest of the $2.6 million and release him, you cheap bastards?
Craig Stammen will take Wild Danny's spot in the rotation:
"Stammen fit the rotation requirements and he's earned it. He pitched outstanding down in Triple-A." (Mike Rizzo, via MASNSports dot com, 5/20/2009)
(Just what are those rotation requirements anyway, Mike?)
