So Ricky Stone was called up yesterday, as Victor Santos was designated for assignment. I remember how crappy Stone was for the Reds in 2005 (6.75 ERA, anyone?), but I hadn’t realized that he actually retired last year.
Yes, Stone has done well for Louisville this season, but I hope no one expects him to help the bullpen blues.
Blame Chad for creating this mess.
