Farewell Wife Beater

Wil Cordero has been Designated for Assigment, removing him from the active and 40-man rosters. It's hard to get broken up over that.

Even if he wasn't hitting worse than Guzman, he's a horrible human being, and just about anything bad that happens to him is probably deserved.

In his place comes Kenny Kelly, a toolsy outfielder claimed off waivers from the Cincinnati Reds, as Bowden continues in his quest to claim every Cincinnati player he ever had in his sytem.

Kenny Kelly won't be a superstar, but he probably has his uses.

Our friends at Red Reporter are certainly ticked off over the transaction.

The Nationals are now carrying six outfielders: Wilkerson, Guillen, Wilson, Church, Byrd and Kelly.

Something's gotta be up, right? Might Church or Wilkerson be on their way out?

The Yankees were sniffing around Marlon Byrd earlier; they desparately need a good defensive centerfielder.

Your guess is as good as mine.

To add to the mystery, Joe "Pythagoras Killer" Horgan and Jacobo Sequea were outrighted, freeing up their roster spots in the 40-man too.

We now have two empty spots on the 40-man. Might that be a sign that a prospects for major leaguers trade is imminent?

Nationals Farm Authority has some speculation.

Whatever happens, it's time to celebrate! Cordero's gone!
