    Does not make sense. He is out of options and will have to pass through waivers to go to the minors.

    Does anyone know if there is a cost to the team for putting a player on waivers?

    I agree that I don't see the fit, although I'd be surprised if he didn't clear waivers given that he's a 29 year old mL journeyman with a sub.700 OPS in mL and a .554 OPS at ML level.

    But even if he clears waivers, with our depth in the mL at catcher what's the point?

    Maybe Cashman is putting together some kind of trade package for a DH.

    Didn't most teams have a shot to claim him off waivers for nothing prior to the Yankees claiming him? I doubt he generates much interest even as a throw-in.

    It seems Romine is injured, had a setback, and isn't going to be ready for the start of the mL season.

    How about this scenario:

    The Yanks tried to send him down and put him on the waiver wire.

    The D'Backs, out of spite, reclaim him. (Not much love between Dbacks and Yanks.)

    DBacks got him, but no room for him on the major. Tried to send him down.

    Yanks claims him again off waiver.

    On room on Yanks, they try to send him down.

    And on, and on, and on...

    Damn you're right. Well hopefully he doesn't check it because I think we could pry Konerko and Thornton away from them for Tatum and Ramiro Pena. I hope I didn't ruin it.
