Remember that a 24 year old Vance Worley was planning a life featuring him, a fiancee and home ownership in Pennsylvania two short years ago and being sent away from that happened to coincide perfectly with his career (and body) going pearshaped.
I'm not saying it's likely that he expressed a lack of desire to remain in the organization and asked to be released or traded back to PA-I just find that a more reasonable scenario than Ryan and Antony fanning themselves with the indeterminate amount of cash they demanded from the Pirates. Alternatively, they may not have seen space for him in Rochester and offered him to a team that wanted him as opposed to simply firing the guy after he'd already been passed on by every team in baseball.
It's an utterly mundane move by a team with too many prospect-and "prospect"-arms in AAA and who have seen enough of a player who hasn't flashed competence since he entered the organization. I've yet to see any quote or allusion by someone "in the know" that suggests there was any ill will or intrigue involved.
If we're going to focus on a topic on which nobody has any idea what actually transpired, can it at least involve conspiracy theories? At least Pirates are already involved...
