New Jew on The Block

With the Phillies’ Joe Blanton headed to the 60 day DL and Placido Polanco going to the 15 day DL they call up Michael Schwimer (no relationship to David or so we think). Schwimer was 9-1 in AAA with 10 Saves and a 1.88 ERA. He had 86 strikeouts in 67 innings. 

This is great news for the Jews, since we were very let down by the Kipnis story. Schwimer should finish the season with the Phillies because even when Blanton returns they will soon be going to the expanded rosters.

Schwimer joins a ridiculously loaded pitching staff. What his role will be is yet to be known. For more click HERE or HERE.

Watch out for more call ups soon.
And Let Us Say…Amen.
