Marlins have sent Logan Morrison to the minors.
Logan Morrison - OF - Marlins

Marlins optioned OF Logan Morrison to Triple-A New Orleans.
Morrison has been stuck in a major slump since the All-Star break and will try to turn things around against a lower level of competition. He should be back in the major leagues after a week or two at Triple-A.

ridiculous IMO.
slump?
not including tonight, over the last 7 days he has .300 AVG, back to back 2 hit games with a HR. slump?

Ack! Postponements!

So far I'm seeing the PHI/WASH and NY/TB as PPD

Yep, I'm near NYC, it's a mess over here, been raining for hours and supposed to continue all day. :-P

At least these are no doubter PPD games, able to get those guys out of your lineups.

I'm so happy the Yahoo trade deadline is (nearly) past. At the end, I was trying to bully people into taking Papelbon. I didn't think it would really be that hard. :-°
