White removed from 40-man roster

Steven White, a Triple-A pitcher, has been removed from the 40-man roster, according to the Post's Joel Sherman. He passed through waivers and will remain with the team.

White has struggled this season, going 4-4 with a 6.61 ERA in 64 innings. He has split his time between the rotation and bullpen, and obviously hasn't been successful at either.

Sherman suggests that this frees up a spot for Sidney Ponson who is a candidate to start one of Friday's games against the Mets.

However, they also could have moved Phil Hughes and/or Chien-Ming Wang to the 60-day disabled list to free up spots for someone like David Robertson, who is absolutely taking the International League by storm. I have a feeling that a move involving Robertson will be made shortly.

Hey Andrew, I found your blog on this website; http://baseball.alltop.com/

I thought your blog title was funny, so I clicked, and noticed that you're from Rockland County, are a print journalism major, and go to Quinnipiac University.

I'm also from Rockland, started out in journalism, and went to QU (Graduated in 2005).

If you don't mind, I'm going to put a link to your blog on my blog, 108 Red Stitches.

Good luck in QU and stay away from the overpriced food in the Cafeteria.

Hah, small word, huh?

I'll link back, and thanks for the advice. Too bad it's one of the only options on campus and I'm sure the food is even more expensive now than it was when you were there.

Bring up PAT!

I can only imagine. I went there right before they renovated the cafe, so food prices skyrocketed once I left campus.

Thanks for the link, good luck with QU and great job on your blog!
