They probably did it to stop other teams from getting him. I highly doubt that they really want him and that crazy contract.

so what? The pirates can not withdraw Kendal from waivers and the Jays will be forced to take him. As a Kendall owner, I salivate at the thought of Kendall in a lineup with Delgado and Wells...

Doesn't it depend on what type of waivers (revocable or irrevocable) he was placed on?

that seems like a strange move for toronto. they've been getting much better production from their catching platoon that kendall could give. and without that ridiculous contract.

Look at the bottom of this link to see a description of the waiver process.

The Pirates would love to be out from under his contract, but they won't let him get away for literally nothing.

For those interested, this was cut from the above link:

“To make a trade from now until Aug. 31, the day a player must be on a team's roster to be eligible for postseason play, any player on a 40-man roster must clear Major League waivers. That is, the player must be offered to the other teams in reverse order of the standings, and if he is claimed by one of the teams, he cannot be traded. The club that placed the player on waivers can either withdraw the request and keep the player, or let the player go to the claiming team, which would then have the rights to the player.

A waiver, which is a permission granted for certain assignments of player contracts, can get complicated if more than one team makes a waiver claim. If more than one club in the same league makes a claim, then the club currently lower in the standings gets the player. If clubs in both leagues claim the player, preference goes to the club in the same league as the club requesting waivers.” With players like Juan Gonzalez, Rafael Palmeiro, Brian Giles, Jason Kendall, and former Yankee Rondell White possibly being waived, don’t be surprised if N.Y. has one or two more moves up its sleeve.

Thanks for the explanation. ;-D
