Colome Released

From the Associated Press:

The Washington Nationals have released right-handed reliever Jesus Colome.
Colome went 2-2 with a 4.31 ERA in 61 appearances last season for the Nationals, who finished a majors-worst 59-102. In 2007, his first season with the Nationals, Colome was 5-1 with a 3.82 ERA in 61 games.
In eight major league seasons with Tampa Bay and Washington, he is 18-25 with six saves and a 4.50 ERA.
Wednesday's move leaves 38 players on Washington's 40-man roster.

Right you are Mr. Madison......Pena, Casto, Montz, Estrada, Clippard....all could come off the 40 man roster and not hurt the team in the least....I would hope they sign 3 or 4 Rule 5 guys tomorrow in hopes of keeping the best 1 on the 25 man roster after spring training.....a lot of dead weight on the 40 man right now.

One would think that a non-specialty relief pitcher like Calamity would be among the most fungible items in MLB. After all, every team has to have SOMEBODY in the minor leagues who can be paid minimum salary to toss a few innings of mop-up relief twice a eek. Other than having "veteran experience," what is the actual value of having a guy like this take up space on a major league roster?

Thanks for the laugh, "Emily." Should we observe a moment of silence for the end of the Colome era? Oh wait, it's Colome, better make that a few l-o-o-n-g moments. He did kind of bottom out, I guess. At least he can take heart in the fact that he will no longer be the butt of our jokes. heh heh.

Hard to argue that he was not the back end of his career. ZING!

Bing-Bam-Boom - Thank you, Ladies & Gentlemen, we're here through the weekend, no cover, two drink minimum.
I can't compete with the punnery here, but will say that's one less Arbitration case to fret over the winter.
