ey roberto do you think the dodgers are making up these DL excuses?? ... because Rafael Furcal got activated but Sherril went to the DL ... and i remember when they wanted to bring back John Ely, Haeger also went to the DL... pretty suspicious lol

Most likely. I don't remember reading anything about Sherrill being injured...

Maybe they should come up with a 'we don't need you but we'll keep you just in case" List.

It does allow them to keep all their crappy veterans for a bit longer.

And it gets Sherrill and that gasoline can for an arm away from a while.
