The NEW BRITAIN BRUINS traded Hensley Lyon , Johnny Mitre , Louis White and 1,500,000 to the AUSTIN CITY LIMITS for Mack Diaz
Wylie posted this message : I've about had it with this stupid team and game.
That usually means a trade is coming and Diaz is the first casualty of a disappointing year. He was shipped off to the Bruins who are going into the post season . The kid has a long career ahead and should fit nicely into Dodgers plans. Austin got a older 3rd-baseman with a couple of good pitching prospects.From my past experiences with frustration ........Perhaps Wylie needs to start drinking ? Makes a losing season seem better!
The JACKSONVILLE JUGGERNAUTS traded Danny Wilson , Anibal Rosado , Gary Stern to the PITTSBURGH PIRATES for Harry Lucano
Jacksonville is another team that for some reason or another , didn't have success this year. They shipped 3 of their M L players to Pittsburgh for a young pitcher. Pittsburgh is still in a fight for his division title. Ard is doing everything he can to get to the post-season. Short of Rape, Pillaging and Plundering...AAARRGGHHH.
The SANTA FE BLUES traded Kip Tulowitzki to the ARIZONA COBRAS for David Bocachica
Just a trade for trade sake...me thinks??
M L INJURIES
Sometimes your the windshield ...........sometimes your the Bug! Miguel "Groan" Baez is the Bug. He herniated a disk in his neck and will be out 7 months. Hatton signed Groan Baez to a 5 year/38.5 million contract in this off-season. Sometimes your the 18 wheeler........Sometimes your the varmit in the road. Splat!!
Vince "Meat Pie" Williams is already back on the field after spending 2 weeks on the DL with a stiff hammy. Vince will want a bigger slice of the pie in next years arbitration negotiations .
Yep..he's a Wilbur. Haywood "Charlotte's" Webber is on the DL for the second time this year. This time it's a sore Quad and he should be back on the field in a day or two.
This ones gonna leave a mark!! Midre "Duran" Duran will miss a year with a torn ACL. Rugby can be heard singing "Out of my mind" over and over again!
After TC signed Kris "Special K" Karros to a big contract 2 years ago. He missed most of season 23 with elbow surgery. Since then he has been healthy until now. This time it's minor and should only miss a couple of weeks with inflammation in his surgically repaired elbow. TC will have to milk him one more year before the elbow goes all soggy!
Jalal "Must be Crazy" Milton is out 7 months with elbow surgery. Nuts!!! he was a good R-5 pickup for the Crabbers.
1.1 million and a S/T invite for this solid minor league position player.
A little wild ...but should eat some innings.
Great minor league power bat.
This kid may get a shot at the bigs.
A late blue-chip IFA goes for 15 million and a S/T invite. He's a great pick-up for Swish's re-build.
He is a AA/AAA who could get a emergency call-up.
Minor league's for this youngster.
1.2 million for this AAA pitcher. Could use a DITR bump on them splits.
"Ball Four" will be heard when this guy pitches.
not a bad pick-up for 1.2 million. he has possibilities.
1.6 million for good range and speed. Good to have these things in a center fielder.
14.1 million for this blue-chip player. Wish can rest easy now that he spent all that prospect cash.
A live body in the rookie bullpen.For now.
The Toyotas are stocking up on the foreign imports.
Killer fastball may get him a shot at the majors.
7.8 million and a S/T invite for this possible GG CF'er who will swipe 30+ bases. Nice!
Solid minor leaguer.
Another solid farm kid.
Wichita's Farm System coming along nicely.
