Tigers - DFAed Williamson

Detroit Tigers - Designated P Scott Williamson for assignment.

No longer traipsing through the verdure, the hurler’s reverie approaches it’s terminus, crushed as the skulls of the ancients upon the dewdrops of history.  No longer basking in the foreday of this mortal coil, the heart no longer pumping ichor through the container of the soul, Aeneas must depart, searching for his animus.  As William Jennings Bryan once said, “Destiny is no matter of chance. It is a matter of choice: It is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.”  Rest in Elysium, noble Tristram.

- Unknown, possibly Curt Smith

And another ROY bites the dust.

He makes Todd Hollandsworth look good.

ROY curse lives!

My favorite Scott Williamson memory is watching him idle in the bullpen while that ####### idiot Grady Little blew Game 7 of the 2003 ALCS. Thanks, Grady.

My favorite Scott Williamson memory was picking him up on the waiver wires on my fantasy baseball team in 1999 and watching him as a reliever rack up strikeouts, saves, innings pitched, and not giving up runs.

Willy had been absolutely lights-out in that 2003 postseason, too. In many ways, Grady's leaving him (and Derek Lowe) sitting in the pen while running Wake out there in extras was even less defensible than the far more scrutinized non-move of failing to yank Pedro. It angries up the blood even now.

Anyhow, best of luck to Willy in his future endeavors. He'll always be remembered fondly by this Sox fan.

haha when I saw this, my first instinct was to come in and post that he should have been in there to match Rivera and THEN you bring in Wake

Dan gets literary. I did not expect that.

#### you Grady you dumb #### - just seeing Willys name makes me think of him and the blood boils

I LOVED watching him in the 2003 postseason.
   11. Ozzie's gay friend Posted: May 04, 2009 at 06:06 AM (#3162777)
though I rember himn having a kinda weird body, like very wide.

I checked the ROY voting for 1999, and Williamson beat out Preston Wilson and some dude named Warren Morris, a 25-year-old second baseman on the Pirates. Kris Benson came in 4th.

I didn't even know he had still been in the majors.
