What a Long, Strange Trip It’s Been

By Blaidd Drwg

I am not sure that any player has had a stranger off-season than Sandy Rosario. Rosario is a 27 year old right hander who pitched for the Marlins last season. In his MLB career, he sports a spectacular 15.26 ERA in 7.2 innings, giving up 13 runs on 22 hits (in his defense, his minor league numbers are much better looking). Nothing spectacular and he is probably a back of the bullpen guy if he ever pulls it together.

Since no one actually cares what Sandy Rosario looks like, I give you an image of a sleeping puppy.

His odd off-season began in October when he was released by the Marlins. Here is how the rest of it goes:

October 17th – Signed by the Red Sox
November 28th – Traded from the Red Sox to the A’s for a PTBNL
December 10th – Released by the A’s and signed by the Red Sox
December 12th – Released by the Red Sox and signed by the Cubs
December 21st – Released by the Cubs and signed by the Giants

Ok, the guy has managed to be on the roster for 5 different teams (and the Red Sox twice) since the season ended. What the heck is wrong with this guy if teams keep picking him up and then dropping him a couple days later? It also appears that he and Eli Whiteside are having a competition to see who can get released more times this off-season.

One thought on “What a Long, Strange Trip It’s Been

  1. Dictionary definition of replacement level = 100% fungible? = 5 teams in 3 months.

    Maybe it’s the way of the future.
