  1. so we traded Montero for Pavano?

    OK – sore shoulder – yes, its an injury. But sheesh – sure is convenient, especially when there was so much press about him going down to the minors. That would have been so embarrassing – this is just an injury.

    • Pineda would accrue servce time if he's placed on the major league DL, whereas he wouldn't have if he were sent to the minors.
