2 1/2 years too late - hit the road Armando

Thank the lord - Armando Benitez is on a plane to Milwaukee - to catch up with his NEW team the Florida Marlins. The Giants traded Benitez to Florida for 25-year-old reliever Randy Messenger, a 6-foot-6 right-hander used mostly in long relief. A source said the Giants also will pay $4.7 million of the roughly $5 million left on Benitez's three-year contract, which expires after this season.

What puzzles me (and 7 million+ other people) - why didn't the Giants deal this guy sooner - Benitez is and always will be a bum!!!
