Yet Another Win For Darwinism; Barney DFA'd
Survival of the fittest and all, and Darwin Barney has just been naturally selected off of the Cubs 40-man roster. So Emilio Bonificaio is activated and Barney gets DFA'd, with Alcantara and Bonifacio both in the starting lineup tonight. Barney will end his Cubs career with over 2000 PA's (holy shit..really?) and a place in the Hall of Cubs Punch Lines. I'm sure a stand-up guy and all and his glove work was spectacular, but he was the hitting equivalent of the sad trombone. But on this day, we celebrate his Cubs career, let's take a fond look back.
- Won the Gold Glove in 2012
- Was Not a Douchebag like Ryan Theriot
- Cost Less Than a Million Up Until This Year
Yeah, I got nothing else. $20 virtual dollars he ends up with the Giants or Cardinals.
