In a surprise move Thursday, Black Widows Manager Marty Cullen designated Alex Casey for the DL and claimed clutch Canadian Chris Barnes off waivers.
Barnes – who works in the north and makes the long trek Sunday to aid the Widows in the qualifiers – has yet to complete a full season with the BBF Herts Baseball Club. No doubt his big bat, quick feet and keen eye in the outfield will help the pennant 'fade to black.'
Casey is listed week-to-week and is not expected to play in the Series.
According to an unnamed Newswire source, all eyes are on Tim Elkins and co-manager Hunter Devine. Both hold waivers and are eagerly scoping out their free agent possibilities. Sources suggest Devine and his Red Roosters will be first to respond to the Widows aggressive off-day dealings.
