Waay behind

Sorry for the negligent posting today.

The Bucs signed Kevin Thompson from the Yankees system today and DFA'd Matt Kata. You can say "same old, same old" if you want, but at least from his minor league stats, but to me at least, it appears that he's got some discernible on-base skills. You'll note that any type of discernible skill was lacking from the Matt Kata/Don Kelly merry-go-round last year. UPDATE: Thompson was claimed from the A's, though he was in the Yankees system before then. My bad.

Meanwhile in the playoff world the Indians are looking to take a 2-1 series lead and they hold a 2-0 lead tonight on geriatric ex-Pirate Kenny Lofton's two run homer while the Rockies are looking for a nine-day vacation with a win against the D'Backs tonight.
