Padres claim Radhames Liz off waivers

In case you missed it, the San Diego Padres today claimed (now former) Orioles pitcher Radhames Liz off of waivers.

If you can’t stop laughing, join the club.

I thought the object of pitching was to keep runners OFF the bases?

I have to believe somewhere this story is about to be written today in San Diego:

(AP) — The San Diego Padres today claimed a player off of waivers that they’ve never actually seen pitch.

The Padres plucked RHP Radhames Liz away from the Baltimore Orioles earlier this afternoon.

The Orioles could be heard smirking all the way from the East Coast.
