Palmeiro loses 1B job

Source: AP (via Yahoo!)

Saw this last night after we were swept to Canada by Oakland. I was glad to see it. He hasn't done a thing since returning from his suspension, playing in only six games and going 2-for-22 with one RBI. Now he's not even considered the starter. The guy is a PR disaster. Personally, I think this is really what should be the final straw. Go ahead and release him. His work is more than done here.

If Palmeiro does decide to play next season, and there would be a few or more teams willing to take a low-risk chance on him, then best of luck to him. But he's of no use to this team now.
