Armando is gone — Free at Last

Giants fans, pop the champagne. In the immortal words of former 49ers owner Eddie DeBartolo, “He’s gone!” The Giants have ridded themselves of Armando Benitez, and not a moment too soon. He’s now the Florida Marlins problem, and considering he’ll be pitching in front of about 5,000 hearty souls each night, he should do fine. The Giants get reliever Randy Messenger, who from what I can tell by the stats, is nothing special. But then again, the Giants probably would’ve settled for a free night of mixed drinks at South Beach to get this deal done.
