Ryan Franklin Released, Not Murdered

The Saint Louis Cardinals released struggling veteran relief pitcher Ryan Franklin from their forty man roster today, a day after he faltered against the Orioles and somehow made his ERA rise from 7.90 to 8.46. The club has not made it public yet if the former All-Star will accept a trip to Memphis for some extra work and BBQ nachos or if he will demand his outright release.

[UPDATE: HE HAS BEEN RELEASED OUTRIGHT, SO IF HE WANTS RIBS AND CATFISH, IT WILL NOT BE PAID FOR VIA PER DIEM.]

SBNation Saint Louis regrets our earlier report stating that Ryan Franklin had been murdered by Brother Mouzone and Omar Little at Avon Barksdale's business development. Our source was drunk on Jameson and Heineken, but we assumed thats how every transaction in Baltimore goes down.
