Another, more logical, decision would have been to stop carrying 3 catchers. Not that I'll miss Taschner. I thought Taschner had an option left anyway?

The press definitely said that Taschner had an option year left. I guess they were wrong. I'd be shocked if Taschner didn't clear waivers.

MLBTradeRumors has the Braves shopping Vazquez for a bat? Why in the world would they do that?

I'm not sure why they didn't just option to AAA since he had an option left. That said I am glad they kept Escalona, if Eyre retires next year I think he could be the second lefty in the pen. Or maybe Bastardo if he is moved back to being a reliever.

I think the Phillies will keep Bako until Ibanez comes back and then keep Mayberry.

What a waste of a prospect...

Taschner comes across as a good guy on The Pen, and I wish him the best of luck wherever he winds up (including if it's Lehigh Valley). But I think most were skeptical of his acquisition from the beginning, and I can't say I'm surprised that it's ended like this.

Yo, new thread

It's now time to take a look at Zagurski.
