The ARIZONA COBRAS traded Anibal Tavarez to the AUGUSTA NORTHMEN for Phillip Mayer
Swish picks up a very nice CF prospect for the future. And the Northmen get a very good bullpen arm that has been Arb'ed three times. He will be in the free agent market next year. In a nutshell, Augusta gave up a good young prospect for the use of Tavarez this year. Avantrael is in a win now mode.
The TAMPA BAY RAYS traded Ryan Monroe and 1,900,000 to the MADISON MUSKELLUNGES for Buck Floyd and Andres Trevino
Madison gets a Power bat . Tampa picks up some youngsters and sheds a 3 year contract.This trade is good for both teams.
The TAMPA BAY RAYS traded Junior Sano , Skip Knotts and Albert Espinoza to the AUGUSTA NORTHMEN for Chip Bailes , John Byrd and Francisco Campos
Tampa picked up 3 prospects to help with the re-build and jettisoned more contracts. Avantrael continues to improve his pitching staff. He grabbed a very tasty pitching prospect (Sano) and a couple overpriced players. At first glance I thought Svick was shave your head, flash your junk, crooked face crazy for trading Sano. But as I looked closer, he really wants out of some bad contracts. So no crazy here, maybe just a tad Mad!

It's been a long time since we've seen Eddie 'Dread" Locke on the DL. Now with the P-Dogs, Dread Locke will miss 2 weeks due to a non-baseball injury. Word has it he was poisoned on a fishing trip to West Virginia. He ate some licorice tasting fish.
Another long time no see. DL darling, Joe "Momma" Valdes returns with back spasms and will be out 2 weeks. Like I've said before, there isn't a part of Joe Momma that hasn't been injured.
