    OK, I did a quick Google, and here's what I found

    A waiver is a permission granted to a Club that desires to assign or release one of its players. There are basically two types of waivers -- waivers for the assignment of a player and waivers for the unconditional release of a player. In both cases, waivers are granted only after all the other Major League Clubs have been given an opportunity to claim the player and none has done so. With regard to assignment waivers, permission is granted for a specific period of time. With unconditional release waivers, once permission is granted the player is a free agent.

    Yay!

    I feel a little sorry for Jimmy, but I imagine the Reds will eat the remainder of his contract so my sorrow doesn't go very far.

    Jimmy dug his own grave with his lack of off-season conditioning.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    Not to mention his lack of in-season ability.

    There are not enough emoticons to express the jubilation I'm feeling right now. I hereby proclaim May 10th "Jimmah Haynes Day" in honor of this wonderous event.

    Yeah!

    I am so freaking happy right now.

    Haynes may just call it quits. I recall in the late 50's the Reds releasing veteran LHP Art Fowler. Upon being told of his release, Art said something like, "If I can't make this pitching staff, I don't belong in the game!"

    OTPH, Jimmy still feels that he can get big league hitters out and is younger (31) than Fowler was (34) at the time.

    I wonder what changed their minds since five days ago? Is this the equivalent of kicking your dog after a tough loss, or did someone's performance in the minors make them take note?

    Etherton's and Belisle's latest games stand out. Claussen's wasn't much, Bong was smoked

    So which team in need of starting pitching should we go visit the board of to start recommending Haynes' as a waiver-wire pickup?

    Who do we have the most games left against? (though knowing the Reds, we would probably make him look like Cy Young Jr, :mhcky21: )

    I think Haynes has a decent chance of landing back in Milwaukee...

    And then he'll proceed to shutout the Reds.

    I'm guessing it probably had something to do with JIMMAH's!! attitude. Perhaps he *****ed about this demotion and was being a real PITA about it so they just decided to let him go outright. Couldn't have hurt PR any although one would believe that the best time to do this (PR wise) would be coming back home from a roadie. Perhaps they don't believe VP will make his next start and the new guy will replace him.

    Might be interesting to listen to Belisle on Lance's show this afternoon.
