Take your time, Roberto. Boom-Boom was placed on the 15-day DL with a pulled muscle in his right side. Jason Marquis will take his place on the roster. I don’t like it. Nothing against Marquis, except that he doesn’t want to be a reliever and Bobby won’t use him even if he did. I’d rather they called up Langerhans or someone who can actually hit to be the fourth outfielder. Amazingly, Bragg still hasn’t been released.

Everyone moves up one slot; Holmes will probably be the eighth-inning guy, with King staying the lefty specialist, Hodges and Bong the middle men, and Gryboski coming on with runners on base so nobody’s nerves get too even.
