Starting Pitching Problems...Solved

"Royals Claim Chris Volstad" per MLB Trade Rumors Volstad on Baseball Ref I don't remember where our 40-man roster stands, but I think this is happening without bumping someone off. It looks as...

In brief, Sean O'Sullivan to the Blue Jays for cash considerations. Do we ever learn more specifics on "cash considerations"? Why such a vague description? How much cash is involved in a deal like this? Also, I hope Sean's family isn't reading the comments on the MLB Trade Rumors post...

National's draft strategy (via MLB Trade Rumors: "The Nationals called prospects each round with a set bonus figure in mind and asked if they would accept. 'If it was a "no," we passed,' Kline said.
