Friarhood tweeted last night that Blake Tekotte was being called up from AA, based on his sources.  A few minutes later Tekotte's teammates were congratulating him on Twitter too, but official news didn't break until about an hour ago.  The real mystery seemed to be who would be sent down and who would be DFA'd.  Which led to a funny exchange with Pat Neshek based on how sad he looked while taking a phone call after the game.  It turns out that he was just calling for a ride and it wasn't him.

Today we find out it's Will Venable being sent down which surprised me, but I guess it shouldn't have based on the way he's been playing.

But then again, maybe it should have surprised me since every player's stats look just as bad.
