Rockies Atkins awaiting "another team" - The Denver Post
Renck's blog post about the decision to not release Garrett Atkins today turned into a regular article, but it's the first four words that made me stop for a moment.

Maybe that'll take a year or two, but representing the future gives off a whole different connotation.
