arrueba… arruebarr… arruebarr-ain't playing here no more (for this year, anyway)

so, it's tough to get a verbal joke across with written text (think office space), but i saw recently that dodger infielder erisbel arruebarrena had been suspended by the team indefinitely for some sort of infraction. it could be that he refused to report to triple-a after clearing waivers and being removed fromt he 40-man roster.  he's still under contract, however, so he could be back next season.

for some reason, arruebarrena was given a short print photo variation in 2014 topps update
and, as you can imagine, i was able to pick one up on the (very) cheap even before the suspension was announced.

ever since the 2012 topps traded super short print dodger card debacle i no longer strive to get all of these flagship/traded sp's, especially since the puig and kershaw sp's don't seem to have had their bin prices reduced even with an extended disabled list stint for puig and a slow-ish start for kershaw.
