He’s All Manny

46Quick note to acknowledge that Manny Acosta is bringing the high heat from Buffalo, demanding the dreaded No. 46 upon his return to the big squad. Dale Thayer, a recently arrived tomato can who had 46, agreed to a swap and took Acosta’s previously assigned 36.

I didn’t know this offhand, but Acosta is a former 46 with Atlanta. I guess this indicates he was always first in line for 46 following the departure of Oliver Perez.

    I think it’s great that 46 is being reissued, the better to move on from the stench of Ollie P. Interesting to note, BTW, that Ollie’s in AA ball (albeit pitching well) in the Washington chain, and Luis Castillo is out of pro ball.

    Thayer out

    And now Dale Thayer is back in Buffalo, leaving 36 vacant. D.J. Carrasco is back in 77 with the big club.
