The AUSTIN CITY LIMITS traded B.C. Alomar to the ARIZONA COBRAS for Craig Dodd and 2,500,000
Austin picks up a GG short stop with a expiring contract. He should help the City Limits while Ruffin the Passer (see below in the DL list) is on the DL. And he is playing on the Cobras dime which is always nice. Arizona keeps adding pieces for the future. They pick up a good young bullpen pitcher starting to hit his prime.
The TAMPA BAY STARS traded Paul Shibata to the COLORADO SPRINGS BANDITS for Tori Miller
We have 2 teams looking to next season and the needs for their respective futures. The Bandits pick up a good bat that will be in Arbitration next year. He will give them about 20-30 homers every year. This could be trouble for SLC and myself next year. The Stars get a very good starting pitcher prospect. This kid has a couple more years to reach his lofty projections. If he does he could be a great ace for jmas's team.
M L INJURIES
Santos "It's all about" Mieses will miss the rest of the year, and then some, after he hurt his neck. He doesn't care about the Stars and I'm sure Jmas doesn't give a shit about him either. The question is: will any body give a flying fudge about him in free agency next year.It's not about the Mieses, It's all about the money!!
Jerome "Swinging" Cochrane is already back on the mound and showing off to the ladies. He missed 2 weeks with a bruised Knee.. This sometimes can happen when you swing your Cochrane to hard. I Know!
I lost Ollie "It's not easy being" Greenwood for 2 weeks with a pulled hammy. It's wasn't going to be easy to hold off Salt lake City with Ollie out. But my guys held their own and now we have our prize CF'er back.
Nick "at Night" McConnell will be out 8 months with a torn hammy. With a health rating in the 20's, it's time to say goodnight to the up all night Misfit.
Howard Ruffin "the Passer" is out for 7 months with shoulder surgery. Talk about a personal foul. The hits just keep coming for Wylie!
Gary "Cis" Stern has sprung yet another leak. He will miss a month this time with a MCL strain. Wish may just say "piss on it!"
9.5 million for this defensive stud. he has great power at the plate. He may turn out to be a good one.
This greta catching prospect is more Jugger than Not. It took only 9.6 million for one of the best catching prospects in years.Can he stay off the DL will be important.
A great minor league catcher.
This cat will make a good closer in AAA and maybe in the majors.A good 3.8 million dollar gamble.
9.9 million for this solid all-around player. He will not be a superstar but he will not embarass either.
