Indians - Dled Juan Gone

Cleveland Indians - Placed OF Juan Gonzalez on the 15-day DL; activated OF Coco Crisp from the 15-day DL.

Probably a good tradeoff for the Indians - I’d rather have a healthy crisp than a sort of healthy Gonzalez.  This stint with the Indians, Juan’s good health allowed him to manage 1 at-bat, for a 1 at-bat improvement.  Crisp is a fun player to watch and even though he has little star potential, he’s a usable league-average centerfielder workin’ for pennies.  Plus, he has a lot of good karma for me for not making my 304/365/406 projection of him prior to 2004 look really stupid.

Too bad the DL in the headline isn't DFA....

Actually, I read it as Died Juan Gone. Now that would be an injury...

The casualty for the Indians in all this is that they'll end up losing Ryan Ludwick. Not that he really mattered all that much, but he has decent power and would still be a good bat off the bench.

Some of the Byrds reunions lasted longer that this.

Everytime I see Coco Crisp's name, I wonder about trying to assemble a Players That Sound Like Something You Can Buy at a Large Drugstore team, but I never get any farther than him and Vida Blue.

That's because you've never gone down the risque Gene Brabender aisle...

The 1972 Byrds reunion album was released on CD about a year ago by Wounded Bird. I know it got extremely negative press when it came out, but I've always sorta liked it. No, it's nowhere near as good as their first five albums, but "Full Circle" and "Changing Heart" are really good Gene Clark songs, and the version of "Laughing" blows the doors off the version on Crosby's solo album...

Ludwick cleared waivers today and was sent to Buffalo.

Is there a bigger puss in the history of the game than Juan Gone? Seriously...

In other news, General Francisco Franco is still dead.

Players That Sound Like Something You Can Buy at a Large Drugstore

Chris Bootcheck
Dain Clay
George Creamer (non-dairy)
Frank Brill
Tim Griesenbeck (apply once daily)
Gene Beard
Duffy Dyer (to apply your Jermaine Dye)
Earle Combs
Virgil Trucks
Sal Butera (lightly salted, also non-dairy)
Red Ehret

And for the kids: don't forget a Mickey Lolich, a Randy Gumbert, a pint of Rocky Colavito, and a bag of Candy Maldonado!

Also, an always-discounted can of Erv Brame, but I can't for the life of me figure out what you do with it.

Cory Snyder (of Berlin or Hanover)

And I'm taking "pulled muscle while dodging a wild pitch" in Juan's Next Injury Pool.

Is Chris Brown still working for Halliburton?
