    I can't believe I didn't email BA about Milton Loo. Hopefully we will have an answer shortly on him. Thanks for the list.

    I wonder if Andy Boutwell had attempted some kind of comeback which failed, or if this was an issue of clearing up paperwork. He hadn't pitched in a couple years.
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    Np about the list. Wasn't Mummy just drafted in the 2005 draft? Wonder why he retired?

    20. Ben Mummy, 1B, U. of Nevada
    6-3/205#, R/R, Age 21

    2005 Billings: .209/.331/.324, 44 G, 148 AB, 10 2B, 1 HR, 20 BB, 47 K, 4/6 SB

    2006 level: GCL, a demotion. Hmm.

    Whaled eighteen homers and drew twenty-five walks his senior season.

    2005 Pro Results: Fatigue appeared to take its toll on Mummy after a solid start. Apparently motivation was a problem as well, as Mummy showed up on the voluntarily-retired list in July 2006.

    Technically speaking, isn't all retirement voluntary? If you're involuntarily retired, doesn't that mean you were fired?

    Ditto Frank Bludau...I think this was just cleanup work.
