Ian Snell Sent To AAA

Ian Snell and his 2-8 record and 5.36 ERA has been sent down to AAA Indianapolis. Virgil Vasquez will take his spot in the rotation. Snell said this was his idea because of all the negativity he was receiving in Pittsburgh. Poor baby. If he thinks the negativity is Pittsburgh was bad, he's lucky he didn't get traded to a city the lives and breathes baseball. Snell is making $3.2 million this season. We have the right to complain. I just hope he goes down and pitches well enough not to hurt any trade value he has left. I like the move. I would have liked it better if Snell was moving for good. As for Vasquez, he was 5-2 with a 4.18 ERA in 14 starts for the Indians.
