    Wow! Though it should have happened, I'm stunned that it actually did.

    You go Krivsky!

    I now have even more respect now for Narron and Krivsky. That's great news in more ways than one!

    Amazing that this guy was the best we could have gotten for Casey. I guess the DFA shows he wasn't injured as was speculated.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Good news. Hopefully this gives Elizardo the spot in the rotation.

    Wow we DFA'd him even though he has an option left? That is kind of surprising, but either way I like it.

    Glad Krivs didn't let the Casey trade get in the way of making the right move.

    Tony Womack - DFA
    Dave Williams - DFA

    As bad as Dan O'Brien got trashed on this board, maybe even we really didn't appreciate what an absolutely awful general manager he was.

    Good move, I suppose -- though now I wonder if they'll actually find a trading partner for him. Are the Mets desperate enough?

    I can't imagine anyone giving up anything for Dave Williams unless they think he was tipping his pitches and can fix it. Sorry, bad joke.

    I hope Dave Williams enjoys Louisville. Maybe he can pal around with Joe & Darrell.

    Very surprising they would do that instead of sending him to AAA. Now watch the Cards sign him and see him stick the ball up our collective youknowwhats when he pitches against us.

    I'm just so happy to hear that Krivsky and Co. made the right decision, and not the politically correct one. I am gaining more and more respect for this new owner and GM everyday.

    Re: Dave Williams DFA!

    Question:

    Do I recall correctly that the DFA means we have 10 days to trade, release, or outright him to the minors? Could this be simply rolling the dice to remove him from the 40 man then? Or perhaps do I remember that incorrectly?

    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12

    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Designated for Assignment

    You'll sometimes read that a player has been "designated for assignment."

    What does this mean? Essentially, it allows a club to open up a roster spot while it figures out what it's going to do with a player. As we'll see below, there are certain situations in which a team needs a player's permission to either trade him or send him to the minors. So rather than force the player to make a quick decision, the team can simply designate him for assignment while he decides.

    More commonly, a player is designated for assignment so the club can open up his roster spot while they're waiting for him to clear waivers, which can take four or five days. Occasionally, a club will designate a player for assignment while they're trying to trade him. That's what happened to Hideo Nomo this past June.
