Kennedy Claimed by DBacks
The Arizona Diamondbacks have claimed Joe Kennedy off waivers. This is the third player the Dbacks have claimed this week, along with Jeff Cirillo and Byung-Hyun Kim. The A’s get nothing in return but salary relief. I suppose that’s good, if Kennedy wasn’t going to generate a draft pick in free agency, but it’s also quite unexciting. I’m not exactly an A’s fan for the accounting ledgers.
1. Kind of surprising they could not deal Kennedy for anything if they just were going to get rid of him.
2. Yeah, we would have taken him for a throw in player or somebody. He's got to be better than Tomko. Er, right?
3. He is definitely better than Tomko.
Damning with faint praise there.
5. 4 OK, he's probably slightly better than Mark Hendrickson.
