— A Timely Look at Transactions as They Happen
Monday, April 26, 2004
Claimed OF Jason Romano off waivers from the Tampa Bay Devil Rays.
Ouch. It’s one thing to trade Antonio Perez because you believe, though erroneously, that Jason Romano is some promising young outfielder, but it’s another thing altogether to dump Perez for a player you think so little of that going 1-for-11 is enough to make the team give up.
As bad as that sounds, it’s much, much worse. Romano’s quote on the trade is one of the funniest things I’ve read in awhile:
”[The Devil Rays] were looking for a middle infielder,” Romano said. “They thought I was a shortstop or second base type, and when I got there they found out I was more of an outfielder. They’ve already got a pretty good young outfield out there, so it wasn’t really a good fit.”
Translation: The Devil Rays didn’t even bother checking who Jason Romano was before trading Antonio Perez for him.
It’s very funny that Chuck LaMar is now one of the longest-tenured GMs in baseball. Perhaps Rachel Phelps should have hired him 15 years ago.
