Munenori Kawasaki was trying to do his regular stretching routine on the floor in front of his locker but was being tormented by Felix, who was up this morning watching Team USA beat Spain in the gold medal game of the Olympics. Felix, wearing his Dwyane Wade Miami Heat jersey, kept running out of the training room and lobbing a small rubber ball at Kawasaki on the floor.

Yes, you can buy them. No, I'm not going to help you with a link. Though if you can arrange for Munenori to wear it, I will pay.

Jose Lopez was DFA'd today (Aug 7th). Yuniesky Betancourt was DFA'd two days ago (Aug 5th). I chose to header link on Yuni's DFA because it highlights that Yuni is still an idiot.
