Pet-a-genie has been designated for assignment, to make room on the 40-man roster for new Venezuelan national hero Alex Gonzalez. Seems like a weird choice, given all the backup catchers on the roster. And we never really got to see what the guy could do. Well, uh, good luck, Roberto.
(Since we're on the subject, am I the only one who hates the term "designated for assignment"? I always thought it was one of the dumber euphemisms out there. I assume we say it rather than "fired" because of the salary obligations involved - is that right? The Wikipedia entry for "designated for assignment", while amusing, doesn't help much.)
