Bad news for Willis fantasy owners.....

Detroit Free Press wrote:Willis was designated for assignment to make room for right-hander Max Scherzer, who returns from the minors Sunday and rejoins the rotation. With Willis’ departure, right-hander Amradno Galarraga stays with the club and assumes Willis’ rotation spot. Despite playing in a park that favors left-handed pitching, the Tigers have returned to an all right-handed rotation.

I'm pretty bummed only because I was really cheering for the guy....he does a ton for charity and just seems like a really good person all around. He just hasn't gotten it done though. Hopefully he can find a job somewhere else and return to a relative amount of success. ;-D

Were there any? :-? I think I'm with you in that he's a seemingly good guy and a great athlete who is pretty fun to watch so it would be nice to see him rebound in some way.

Hal·la·day, n. 1. every fifth day in Philadelphia. 2. a day of rest for the bullpen. 3. innings eater. 4. doc. 5. ace.
