Does anyone know if it's the Bereavement List or the "Bereavement" List?

I don't want to make a crack about his goldfish passing if he lost a family member.

Apparently Bruce Levine had a stroke and Carl is really close to him.

Hope Felix is dialed in with his control. He was quite good last year in his cup of coffee. This year he walked 4 in his first 2 appearances but only 2 (in 1 app.) in his last 6. He last pitched on the 1st so he should be nice and fresh to go and face the best offense in baseball.

Looks like Seal Boy and Grimm are coming back up today. Assuming Anderson to DL and Zastryzny back down? With only 38 on the 40 man currently, I can see Pena heading back down too, with Rosscup or Rollins being added and brought up.

Is Pierce Johnson on the 40 man? Would be interested in what he could do as a long reliever. Also guessing Butler stays down and Monty joins the rotation?

He is and he'll probably get a chance later this year, but he's really got to work on his control and show some improvement there, before he's given a chance probably.

Heyward to the DL. Retro to the 6th. Dylan Floro being brought up as yet another sacrificial arm.

Dylan Floro was sent back to Iowa. We can pour one out for the 4.1 mop up innings he threw today that saved the pen.

As many HR+BB as IP makes it a pretty easy choice. Hopefully he gets right in Iowa.
