Napoleon Complex

Larry Bigbie is headed to the 15-day DL with a strained left hammy, and Napoleon Calzado (OF/3B) is up to take his spot on the roster.

What next, huh?

Calzado is 25, pretty waifish (6'3", 160 official listing), and isn't any good. He was signed as an amateur free agent in '96 and has never had so much as a cup of coffee in the bigs.

The part that, to me, was most interesting:

To make room for Calzado on the 40-man roster, Baltimore designated Class AAA outfielder Tim Raines Jr. for assignment.

It's about time.
