Update, 12:09pm PT: Jon Heyman reports that the deal is actually Harang and cash considerations for Hernandez. Aaron Harang! In Coors Field! Praise the deity of your choice.Harangutan will certainly flourish at Coors Field, right?
Original post: Per Troy Renck of the Denver Post, the Dodgers have acquired catcher Ramon Hernandez from the Rockies for reasons that I absolutely cannot fathom. Renck points out that Hernandez was DFA’d last week and all the Rockies can expect is some salary relief from the $3.2m he’s owed this year, but I’m hoping that this is a prelude to something larger, because if it’s not, this raises a ton of questions.
Like MSTI, we are left to wonder if this is part of something larger in play. Hopefully it doesn't involve stockpiling light-hitting, young and still unproven or old and failing catching help, if we need catching help at all.
