I like that one for Bwanna. I think I just favor whomever gets Atkins.
Yep, it was definitely a good deal for Bwanna. Atkins has been nuts, and I already have Wright so with the scarcity of good 3Bman I had to use him as a chip. I went young with Morneau and Swisher, especially because I need a guy to fill in for the still-developing Milledge. Zambrano will be missed -- I originally offered Oswalt with Atkins but Zambrano was needed to get the deal done.
Well, I hated to lose Morneau who was just now heating up, and my only regular first baseman for next season, depending on Blalock's position. And, I still think Swisher will turn things around, so I hated to sell-low on him after taking him in the eighth round. Wasn't sure about Z, but he appeared to be OK after his last start.
Anyway, hope it works out for both parties.
