Are you surprised? Nope, not in this economy! <i>rimshot</i>
The Feesh, as we all know, have been going hardcore with their elimination plans. The Tampa Bay Rays, not to be outdone, have DFA’d Corey Dickerson, who was an All-Star last year (huh?), picked up C.J. Cron (why?) and traded Jake Odorizzi to Happy’s Minnesota Twins for a high-A shortstop in their farm system.
As the kids say, whut.
I mean, I know that Odorizzi hasn’t been the reliable innings eater that he has been, and his ERA isn’t as great as it could be, but this is just another head scratching move from a Florida team.
The real surprise, and the thing that is taking Twitter by storm, is dropping Corey Dickerson like a bad habit. Here’s some tweets with some stats:
What did Dickerson do? Did he run over Chris Archer’s dog? Did he threaten to have DJ Kitty deported? What happened?
