The HELENA BARKING MOONBATS traded Thom Wright and Jesus Canseco to the ARIZONA COBRAS for Benji Martin and 2.3 million.
Swish is waving the white flag on this season. He said. " ship be sinkin'. send me offers for anyone and everyone". So Sordie was the first to pick the Bones of the season 24 Cobras. He grabbed all-star Martin, with this years salary paid. Swish received a 20 year old slugger who hit 46 homers in LowA last year. He is a lefty so he may play in RF when he hits the bigs. Helena also sent Swish a old pitcher to fill the hole left by Martin.
The ARIZONA COBRAS traded Placido Telemaco and 5 million to the NEW BRITAIN BRUINS for Andrew Stripling , Troy McIntyre and Phillip Rhodes
The Firesale in Arizona continues with 20 million dollar man Telemaco getting shipped off to New Britain. Telemaco won his second Cy-Young last year at age 36. And he will be getting 20 million till he's 40. A great addition to any rotation and this makes the Bruins a World Series contender. Swish picked up Dodgers first round pick last year ( McIntyre), a DITR catcher and the Worland Wonder. While none of the players are in the same zip code as Telemaco. This was about dumping a big contract and getting the best offer.
M L INJURIES
Mo "Gadishu" Coleman will miss 2 months with a fractured clavicle. The Tabaky Farmers will have to find Somali else to play in right field. Super six-one going down!!
Must be my lucky day. One of my favorite nicknamed players, Yank "me don't thank me" Hill is on the DL. Lucky for Jeff he will be out only 2 weeks. Word has it, he tore a miscus at a Ted Nugent concert last week.
GRRR..... Danny "No Bite" Barker is back on the DL. He will miss 2 weeks with a dislocated shoulder. Ihateunc is growling!!!
Jason "Glengary Glen" Ross will miss 2 weeks with a broken wrist. What???? A broken wrist in real life would end a players season. What if Sports may be trying to sell us a bridge in Madison?
Del "Rio" Martin will be out 2 weeks with a strained shoulder. PB could be heard in the training room sayin "Cry me a River Martin.Now get the hell out you cry baby"
Emmanuel "De" Soto used to be a De L Darling but has been healthy the last 7 year. Now this Prairie Dog All-star will be out 2 weeks with a stiff hammy. This is all Aaronwayne de-needs de-now.
Austin was building for the future and David "Bob" Villalona was part of the plan. But he had a falling out with Wylie and was waived. Richmond picked him off the wire and..... wallah!!! He will be out 2 weeks with a sore elbow. "Bob" Villalona needs to show some improvment if he plans on getting paid next year in Arb.
Luis "Fast Track" Manto was signed this year in the IFA market ,appeared in 4 games at AA, then was promoted to the Bigs.Now after 9 inning he goes on the 15 day DL with a strained back. A Back Track of the Fast Track....maybe??
"Well" Albie Estrada will miss 3 weeks with a dislocated shoulder. Must have hurt it in the annual Buffalo Chip Chucking Contest. Well I'll be, have you ever seen such a thing?
Carlos "Fettucine" Wilfredo is out 3 weeks with elbow inflammation. Could this promising Augusta pitcher be a soft noodle? I don't think so, just a brief Pauseta in his career.
Filling the rookie roster with live bodies....I think live.
A pretty good pick-up for a million.
I think he has a pulse??
He landed a bit part on the "Walking Dead"
A great defensive minor leaguer. Many GG in his future.
1.6 million for a solid IFA prospect.
This guy will be a good minor league CF'er
2 million for this lefty. May make it to the Bigs??
3.2 million for this nice 1st base prospect.
The Stars landed this very nice catcher with 7.3 million and a invite. Keeping this guy off the Dl will be paramount
Chippy Chippy Bang Bang we love you!
Just a coat hanger on.
Some rookie league power.
He says. "Wheres my Yacket"?
The reason he wears shades is .....he is BLIND!!
Another Bean in the Rookie pot.
This guy is just a wind breaker. Peeyeww.
