The Dodgers picked-up 1B/OF/PH Mark Sweeney from the Giants in exchange for a PTBNL. I've been in Vermont for a week wondering why Canadian geese aren't treated as vermin and eliminated! Could that have taken so much mental energy that I missed a reason why the Dodgers would want Sweeney? Is this the purported Colleti-itis revealing itself?
Braves closer Bob Wickman was not used yesterday because of some lingering forearm issues dating back a couple weeks (read: pre-trading deadline). Oscar Villareal was used for the final out in yesterday's win, but I'd expect recent acquistion Octavio Dotel to get the chance to pick-up where he left off in Kansas City. I wonder if John Schuerholz' reputation gets tainted knowing he was trying to deal a hurt Wickman to New York.
