Tons of moves and news

Well, it appears that Mr. Mike Ashmore has landed upon the treasure trove of news. First, Paul Bush has gone on the Disabled List and has had an MRI performed on his right elbow. Speaking to Bush in the clubhouse, Mike reports that Bush "doesn't seem real optimistic." How astonishing would that be if the Thunder, within the a span of less than two months, lost two pitchers to their second Tommy John surgery?

Secondly, it appears that Wilkin De La Rosa is headed back to the rotation. The experiment of sending De La Rosa and Lance Pendleton into the rotation appears has ended rather quickly. Pendleton didn't last two weeks, and De La Rosa didn't make it two months. Can't be really happy if you're a Yankees fan, losing Bleich, Garcia and Bush to arm troubles in less than 60 days.

Also, Jorge Vazquez, the slugging first baseman from Mexico, is back with the Thunder. After being slated to start the season in Scranton, Vazquez had an appendectomy before the season started. Now, back in Trenton, he joins Austin Romine and Brandon Laird in forming one of the most fearsome 3-4-5s in the minor leagues. When David Adams comes back, assuming Vazquez is still in Trenton, that is going to be a NASTY lineup. Kevin Smith was placed on the Disabled List to make room for Vazquez.
