Nationals cut Will Ohman mid-game

Baseball can be a rough game at times, especially during Spring Training, but Nationals reliever Will Ohman got a bit of a surprise on Sunday when Washington cut him…before their game with the Cardinals was even over.

That seems a bit odd. Why not wait until the game is over? Guess they wanted him out of the clubhouse or didn't want to risk him going home before the end of the game or something.

The author is using "cut" here to mean reassigned to minor league camp, rather than released.

At least he didn't get bacterial meningitis.

I'm surprised Ohman would go for that. He doesn't look emo.

I always though Will Ohman should be nicknamed "Professor".

/High Anxiety joke.

Another chance to put together the inspiring bullpen tandem of Ohman - Balfour

Why not wait until the game is over?

Because a right handed hitter was at the plate?

Ohman should telekinetically send a sheet of plate glass through the GM's neck.
