The world is made for people who aren't cursed with self-awareness

Case in point, Jim Bowden, who just said this on Sirius radio about the Pudge Rodriguez deal:

“Following in the footsteps of Paul Lo Duca and Dmitri Young, another bad [signing] by the Nationals.”

That’s former Nats GM Jim Bowden. The man who signed both Lo Duca and Young.  I sure hope he had his tongue placed in his cheek for that one.

On Monday, the Pirates announced the club suspended reliever Keone Kela two games for an unspecified contract violation. Kela will begin serving the suspension tonight.

Kela, 26, went on the injured list in early May with a right shoulder injury. He was on a rehab assignment with Triple-A Indianapolis for the last week and a half. Prior to the injury, Kela posted a 4.63 ERA with an 11/4 K/BB ratio in 11 2/3 innings.

After sitting out Monday and Tuesday, Kela can rejoin the Pirates on Wednesday in the middle of their four-game home series against the Cardinals.
