When the Indians traded Aaron Laffey for Matt Lawson, the first thought you had was

It's not a sin, son. Confession is good for the soul.

How 'bout it. Anybody else wanna testify? :biggrin:

Since we're just posting random stuff, how about this comparison my brother pointed out to me yesterday:

Can you spot the difference?

I turned on the game last night just in time to hear Hammy say "slider got him!" as Sipp struck out a Mariner batter on a slider (I was at the Monsters game prior to that). For a moment, I thought "this is bad, we've put the MASCOT in to pitch!" :s_rofl

I think thats the first time my PC has actually smelled like cheese..... Thanks for the laugh..

As far as Lawton, was a dumb trade to begin with. Not much impact though but seemed pointless at the time. Now if Lawton "un-retires" he remains Indian property right or?

Do we get Laffey back? Did Lawson come with a one-year warranty?

Speaking of trading for the wrong minor leaguer, I just saw the tweet about Knapp having shoulder surgery. Again???

All he's been doing is rehabbing and throwing batting practice and now he needs his second shoulder surgery? This guy is turning into the next Adam Miller. :wacko:

No more drafting or trading for guys that throw 100 mph. They can't stay healthy. The human body isn't made to throw that hard, except for a few rare freaks like Nolan Ryan and Feller.

Aaron Laffey was essentially traded to give him a chance to 'catch on' with a major league club. The Indians had decided to go another way, so Laffey's spot in the bullpen was tenuous, at best. It was a "class" move by the Indians to give Laffey a chance with the M's..a chance he has taken full advantage of.. btw..
