Roster changes

I just noticed that, before we traded for Guillen, the Nationals dropped Josh Labandeira (SS) and Shawn Hill (P) from the 40 man roster to make room for their new free agent signings. Labanderia was hitless in 14 at bats over his first 7 games, whereas Hill compiled an ERA of 16.00 over 3 starts last year. I assume these guys were sent back to AAA, which just goes to show that there's plenty of crap on our 40 man roster... we never should have had to put a perfectly good prospect on wavers for the Blue Jays to pick up.

Even the mainstream sports writers are in shock at the Guzman signing. Tom Verducci sees the signing as bad, and thinks it is a sign of a player-friendly market this year.

I saw the comment about the color scheme, and I'll try to address the problem. This new scheme doesn't seem much better, but it'll be late in the weekend before I can play with it.

Josh Labandeira underwent shoulder surgery on October 15 to repair a torn labrum. Labandeira, 25, said he expects to be sidelined for four months, possibly cutting into the start of the Expos' first spring training as Washington's new major-league team.

Shawn Hill underwent Tommy John surgery in mid September and will miss the 2005 season.
