The huge news of the day, Phil Hughes no longer has a retarded number. In a related story, the number 34 will be retired in about 20 years.
Doug Mientkiewicz signed a minor-league deal with the Pirates. If something out of Betemit/Ensberg/Shelly works out, he will not be even remotely missed.
Also, today's Kige is up there among the all-time greats. I believe.
