to play a few more childish games with Reds before he's finally jettisoned into outer space (no link on this).
According to his C-ness, Micah Owings, who was reported earlier in the evening to be one of the PTBNL in the Dunn trade, didn't make it through waivers to the Reds. One of the four teams below us made a claim. Trent won't go on record as saying it's Leatherpants but he has heard that from what he claims it's a reliable source:
If true this is of course annoying, but hardly surprising. All it means is that the D'backs would have to pull Owings back from waivers until after the season is over and complete the trade then. Even with his shoulder soreness, it would have been nice to have Owings here for the remaining 40 games or so. But considering the Reds' history with pitchers and injuries, he might be best left in Arizona's care. Less poking. Less Poling.
I guess we could use this space to continue discussing the trade now that another piece of it has been revealed. Of course, any colorful epithets you'd like to add to your fondest memories of Leatherpants would also be welcome below.
