Brian Bullington claimed by Cleveland

The "Munoz replaces JVB" story at the PG has been updated with this blurb:

Also today, the Cleveland Indians claimed starter Bryan Bullington off waivers from the Pirates. Had he cleared by this afternoon, he would have reported to Indianapolis.
Now, I'm trying to think of some kind of cogent analysis here. That maybe there's something buried in Bullington's AAA stats that have indicated to Shapiro that he's worth something. Instead, all I can think of is, "HAHHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!"

Seriously, the Indians are screwed if they think Bullington can help them in any way, shape, or form. Maybe when they overreact and fire Shapiro this winter, he'll come be an assistant for Huntington.
