Sexson to D-Backs in 9 player deal

Postby nsulham » Mon Dec 01, 2003 2:24 pm

ESPN.com news services
The Diamondbacks and the Milwaukee Brewers completed a blockbuster trade Monday that sends slugger Richie Sexson to Arizona as part of a nine-player deal.


Milwaukee sent Sexson, reliever Shane Nance and a player to be named to Arizona for infielder Craig Counsell, second baseman Junior Spivey, first baseman Lyle Overbay, catcher Chad Moeller, and left-handers Chris Capuano and Jorge De La Rosa.


The Brewers scheduled an afternoon news conference at Miller Park to announce the deal.


De La Rosa was one of four players the Red Sox traded to the Diamondbacks on Saturday for Curt Schilling.


The Boston deal wasn't final until Schilling's physical exam Monday. Schilling had to pass the physical before De La Rosa could be added to Arizona's roster, and therefore eligible for a trade.

I thought a team had to wait a certain amount of days before trading someone that was just recieved in a trade...wait...that might be basketball...anyways, good deal for the d-backs IMO.

The D-backs are making some moves this year. They should be pretty good if Fossom does well. Sexson should be good in Zona.

Fossum will do good. Simply because the fact that he left Boston. For some reason, whenever we trade someone or let them go, they suddenly do good. I wouldn't be surprised if from now on, he becomes an all-star pitcher, and wins 6-7 cy young awards...(I'm kidding.)

Here's what Rotoworld has to say about it:

Rotoworld wrote:Richie Sexson - 1B - Arizona Diamondbacks Dec 1

Diamondbacks acquired 1B Richie Sexson, LHP Shane Nance and a player to be named from the Brewers for 2B Junior Spivey, 1B Lyle Overbay, INF Craig Counsell, C Chad Moeller, LHP Jorge De La Rosa and LHP Chris Capuano.
So much for the four- or five-player deals that were being reported. The Brewers are doing better here, but the Diamondbacks aren't heartbroken to lose any of these players. We disagree with Arizona's feeling that Matt Kata is basically just as good of an option at second base as Spivey, and that downgrade could hurt them next year. The upgrade at first base will be huge, but so was losing Schilling. This wasn't a bad move, but the Diamondbacks don't seem to be any better off than they were a week ago. As for Sexson, don't expect his numbers to change very much. Arizona would seem to be a better situation for him, but he had at least as many men on base for him last year as he will in 2004.

Is it just me or does Milwaukee seem like a fantasy waste-land next season?

Aside from Pods, Jenkins, Kolb and perhaps Spivey or Overbay, no one else seems worthy of consideration.

Or am I just forgetting some players? :-?

That's a pretty good "chunk" of the D-Backs' infield going North. Does this mean Robby Hammock will be the every-day catcher? I don't necessarily agree with Mad's remarks about Kata. He may never be Jeff Kent, but I think he will field the position adequately and provide enough offensive help to be OK. He and Bo Hart are "peas-in-a-pod" both are quick fielders, but prone to over-swinging at the plate. If either of them listens and learns from hitting instructors, they have the potential to be pretty good.

I think Detroit is the fantasy wasteland. Who is worth having other than Dmitri Young, whoever is closing and maybe Carlos Pena if your desperate for a 1B?

Well Detroit is a obviously a given. I just said Milwaukee would be A wasteland, not THE lone one.

I think you could also lump TB in there (exception of Huff, Crawford, Baldelli and Hall).
