    It will be interesting to see if Belisle can provide some stable long relefe. I do question why they optioned Burns back to Louisville instead of an DFA. The guy just plain stinks...and he has stunk in three different stints with the team. It's not like this is his first trip to the bigs. Maybe Louisville is just desperate for arms and need a warm body to keep on the roster, but if it were me I'd send him packing and open the spot for a youngster that has a chance of someday making the team.
    a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    Is this like finding one more row boat on the Titanic?

    Burns has been really good in AAA this year. Maybe they thought he could help Louisville.

    Good to see Belisle back.

    Belisle is a better rower than Burns. Burns would crash the rowboat into a iceberg if he had the chance.

    More like a broomstick and an inflatable chaise lounge.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Mike Burns = pitching version of Brandon Larson?
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Burns boat had a giant hole in hull long before he crashed it.
