What does that mean, you ask? He has six fingers on each hand. I had no idea before I was sent to his Wikipedia page by Mark, an alert reader.

Perez was claimed off waivers today from the Indians (see the Game 72 post) and sent to Trenton.

When asked about Perez, Brian Cashman smiled. “I got the pitcher from Cleveland you’ve all been expecting,” he said.

Alas he didn’t say, “Inconceivable!”

(If you have no idea what in the hell I’m writing about, it’s a reference to the fantastic movie The Princess Bride. If you have never seen it, go pick up a copy.)
