    interesting, Hill is still on the roster. He didn't hit much but they seem to win more when he's in. Nothing wrong with a little competition.

    Kind of funny. BoSox tried to trade for Max Ramirez 2 years ago and the Rangers wouldn't deal him. Now we pick him up for nothing and dump him in less than a week.
