The yankees just resigned Hale to a minor league deal. 

Then again, maybe it wouldn't be so bad to be David Hale.     :)

Dodgers sign Danny Espinosa to a minor league deal.

He's racking up the frequent flyer miles in the past couple of years...DC, Anaheim, Tampa Bay, Seattle, New York, Toronto, Los Angeles...

Someone should do a map with his routes.  It would probably look like a pentagram...though at this rate, he'll end up with a dodecahedron...

So Manny Acta just managed his first game filling in for Scott Servais of the Mariners.  M's fans are already disgusted with him.  The dope apparently didn't challenge a play that could have changed the course of the game.

His bench coach apparently is Ichiro. Who has never coached at all and I’m sure knows the intricacies of replay... :hysterical:

A halfway decent manager shouldn't need their bench coach to do their thinking for them.

Acta is about as fit to be a MLB manager as John Wayne Gacy was to be a babysitter.

I wasn’t excusing him at all. It’s more compounding the folly of the entire situation.

So who is that on? I’m actually being serious. We knew he had the stuff. So who’s fault is it that he was craptastic here? His? The pitching coaches? DC Fans? Kirk Cousins?

I gotta go with it being Blake Treinen's fault.  :)

Seriously, sometimes people just figure it out elsewhere.

Felipe turned into a stud once he got away from us too, we sure don't seem to develop relievers very well :(

Clip with another save in Toronto.  He's acting closer as long as Osuna is suspended.

I wonder if the performance of our ex-pitchers had something to do with Maddux getting canned...
