The SAN FRANCISCO KICKAPOOS traded Omar Perez , Peter Hodges , Glen Swann to the SCOTTSDALE SHOCK SQUAD for Marty Allen and Chien-Ming Dong
The Kickapoos continue their wheeling and Dealing before the deadline. Mark shipped a player that he aquired from Minnesota and a player he aquired from Durham and a player he aquired from Tampa to the Shocksquad.

M L INJURIES
The Crabbers were glad this injury wasn't to serious.A strained shoulder kept this Player of the week out for 2 weeks. He is already back on the mound mowing them down.
When Sandy "In My Crack" Hiatt went down last season I wrote this ."nwsheehy007 took another gamble on a sickly player. And..well......2-1/2 months with elbow tendinitis He only has 3 more years at 6.3 million per, left on his contract" He will miss 5 months with a labrum tear. Only 2 more years on his contract!!
J.B. "Final" Battle will miss a month with a Elbow strain.This is not what the Toyotas had in mind when they traded for this shutdown bullpen pitcher.
Mule "Master" Bates missed 2 weeks with a strained shoulder.Gee.... I wonder how Master Bates got that Injury??? The Misfits may want to cancel his Hustlers subscription.
B.C "Green" Olivares will miss several weeks with a strained groin.This oldtimer is in his 15th season and this is his first DL stay. Green is Good!!
Bryan "I'm Dying" Greisinger will miss 2 weeks with a back strain. This guy will be on the DL with regularity.

15.1 million and a big league contract for this nice prospect.This kid is M L ready and could start in the Bigs tomorrow. Really Nice!!!
1.3 million for this future big leaguer. He will make a nice RF'er who could hit .290-.300.

I paid 5.2 million and a S/T invite for this good hitting RF'er.
15 million for this nice pitching prospect. He could pitch in the Bigs next year.
