Well he was placed on waivers, not waived; different things. Which, in turn, makes this non-news because he isn't going anywhere.

So, first he is not on the trading block, but now he gets put on waivers? Either PK or the Sox changed their mind.

Bingo. Super misleading title.

It makes me sad how few baseball fans understand the concept of waivers.

Right. Probably half the team was placed on waivers. But why couldn't he be going to a contender for one last run?

I'm sure that PK is not in any future Sox plans but it looks like they are giving him a chance to be picked up by a contender so he will go out a winner.
I think this is his last year but if I was in charge I would want him to finish the year in Chicago and be given a big appreciation day on the last Sunday home game.

Hopefully nobody claims him.

While I understand the idea of letting Paul go to a team that can give him a playoff shot, I'd really prefer giving him one last run as a Sox player.

Especially considering he may retire after the season.

Sigh.

Almost every player is put on waivers this time of the year. Why does this seem to be "news" every season?

I fixed the title it was horribly deceptive.

This isn't news every player on the team almost will be put through the waiver wire.

Could we just have 1 thread that lists everyone who has been put through waivers since it will be over half the league.

I suppose we should also have threads for when each player eats breakfast or goes to the bathroom too, would be just as useful.
