Hill appears headed elsewhere
If Rich Hill is ever going to get his act together it's certainly not going to be in the AL East. It looks like he'll be moving on. Godspeed, Rich Hill. We'll always have that one game that made me think you could pitch. -Stacey

Omar had this one chick pullin' guns out her Open Thread. That [stuff] was unseemly, yo.
