Trachsel signs with Baltimore

Postby Havok1517 » Tue Feb 13, 2007 1:52 am

Steve Trachsel and the Orioles have agreed to terms on a one-year, $3.1 million contract with a $4.75 million option for 2008, according to's Ken Rosenthal.

That didn't take long. Trachsel will replace Kris Benson in the rotation, putting Jeremy Guthrie back in the bullpen mix and making it likely that Hayden Penn and Garrett Olson will open the season in Triple-A. It's unlikely that he'll have any fantasy value.

3.1 million for Steve Trachsel? The market sucks, but it's Steve freaking Trachsel!

It's the Baltimore paradigm! As soon as the Orioles sign a guy, he will get hurt, stop taking steroids, not live up to his potential, get caught with a hooker in Vegas, etc...

Poor Corey Patterson... looked so good last year, but we'll see what grim fate befalls him during Spring Training....
(taps little picture of a microphone)... is this thing on?

Trax never had fantasy value with the Mets. He's certainly not going to have any in that division so I am going to shift this over to the updates forum. O's fans have some "long" days ahead of them. ;-)
Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

This guy has no fantasy value whatsoever.
