So, it's possible one or both guys requested to be waived to see if they'd catch on elsewhere (and their agents may well have had indications to this effect from other teams).
Or both of these moves could be for contract clearing. Or they both could have been because they legitimately want(ed) to send the guys down to play in HFD (doesn't make sense in the Halpern case IMO). Or it could be some combination of the above.
Either way, glad to see Bickel gone. Torts used him too much (and then used him poorly) when he was available to him.
Now take Boyle away from him.
I can imagine Torts getting hysterical screaming "Where's my jam??!?"
