Smell Ya Later, Don Kelly

"And what happened, then? Well, in Whoville they say - that the Grinch's small heart grew three sizes that day."

Don Kelly was DFA'd by the Tigers today. Ya know, they sure know how to make a sick, smartass blogger guy feel better. The reign of terror of the Warlock of Suck that is Don Kelly is over. Good gawd, if the vet puts Schlereth down and they drive Boesch out to a nice field and speed off leaving him behind...I might actually start liking this team again.

In all seriousness, Don Kelly might be the nicest player in baseball. And you'll have a hard time finding a better teammate. This blog is no fun without a whipping boy and Donnie did his job well. I'll never forget the sight of JV setting him fire. What a nice moment in time. I wish him nothing but the best for him and his lovely family in the future.

Unless the Twins sign him. You know they're thinking about it. In that case, I hope Kelly trips on one of Mauer's sideburns and breaks his neck.

Thanks for always doing you best, Don. Guess I need a new Public Enemy Number One around here.
Yeah. I'm looking at you, buddy. Learn to take a pitch and quit dogging it in the field or we're not going to be able to be friends.

 Haha, I just popped on here to see if you'd heard the news yet.

You can't even hate on Laird this year.  He's done his job well.  If Brenyan Raboesch is going to be picking it up like I think he/they will, then who will be your whipping boy?  Who will replace the irreplaceable Donnie [Bad At] Baseball?

The answer ^

Delmon Young.

 well, based on performance, I really can't hate on the guy, just like Rogo did not love DK for his personality.  delmon is wild, and a shit fielder, but he hits a lot when he needs to.  he was the only hitter who appeared to be awake during the playoffs last year.
