Tampa Now Killing Off Its Pitchers Literally

What would you do if you were pitching so poorly that the Tampa Bay Devil Rays wanted to send you to the minor leagues? Legitimate question: No one seems to have any idea what happened to starter Dewon Brazelton. His agent released a statement and now isn't talking, and no one in D-Rays' front office has any idea if he's going to report to Triple-A Durham or not. Meanwhile, he's being spotted everywhere: one "fan" saw him having lunch in Tampa, some think he went to his hometown of Tullahoma, Tenn., and, in what we think it's totally the most likely, many suspect he went to Amsterdam. Heh. Yeah, that's probably where we'd go.
