So Long Santos, Welcome Aboard Stone

As BubbaFan already noted, the Reds have designated for assignment Victor Santos after a horrible extra-inning loss to the Phillies. They called up, in his place, Ricky Stone. Apparently this guy has been around before or something. Sez the official site:

After pitching in 23 games for the Reds in 2005, his fourth Major League season since being selected by the Dodgers in the fourth round of the 1994 First-Year Player Draft, Stone walked away from baseball in hopes of finding a routine as a business owner and family man.

Of course, I wish Stone and all the Reds the best of luck, though I do have that same sort of Groundhog Day feeling that smartelf was talking about.
