The LOUISVILLE REDTAILS traded Byron Weathers and 2,000,000 to the SANTA FE BLUES for Chun-Lim Yang
Weathers was a bust in Louisville so he was shipped to Santa Fe to help out the Blues offense. The former ROY will help put some crooked numbers on the scoreboard. Yang was expendable after many the free agents pitchers were signed in the off-season. He should eat some innings in Louisville and maybe the change will boost his career numbers. This trade helped the needs of both teams.
The SAN FRANCISCO KICKAPOOS traded Wesley Goodwin and 500,000 to the JACKSON BLACK BEARS for Dave Moore
Jackson picks up a one of the best all-around 3rd basemen in Wrigleyville. He should be a veteran influence for a young, up and coming, Black Bear team. Moore was Jacksons 1st round pick in season 21 and the Kickapoos continue to add great prospects for the future. This trade makes sense for both teams. One re-building and another building a playoff juggernaught.
