Ezequiel Carrera stopped in Cleveland for a cup of coffee (one of those really small ones they serve espressos in), Dice-K went on the DL (likely causing the entire Japanese sports media set up camp outside Clippers trainer Jim Quinlan's office), and the mass exodus (or is that M*A*S*H* exodus) to DLs all over the org continued.
