"Expect Anna to be claimed by a team that puts emphasis on minor-league numbers. In other words, he should start packing for Cleveland."

How is Brian Roberts not camped out in front of AT&T PArk holding a cardboard sign reading, "WILL MAN KEYSTONE AND OCCASIONALLY HIT DOUBLES FOR FOOD"?

He's probably still hitchhiking his way west.

Or he's arrived, but can't parallel park.
