Pirates....What an awesome job by NH. Truly fantastic.
Handful of cat vomit = Chris Snyder/Pedro Ciriaco
An over the hill LH reliever = Joe Martinez/John Bowker. I like Bowker a lot, SF gave him one chance and gave up.
Octavio Dotel = Andrew Lambo/James McDonald
Lance Berkman + cash for a reliever and magic beans? WHAT!??
Austin Kearns and cash for cash
2011's closer or a sandwich pick for $1.45mil
Jake Westbrook for Corey Kluber, a SP who has a 10 K/9 at AA
Ludwick is under control in 2011 as well. EXACTLY what they required Losers:
Diamondbacks: MetsFAIL-level terrible
Haren = lottery tickets + Saunders
Snyder = worse then nothing
Qualls = nothing
Giants: Javier Lopez for Martinez/Bowker = FAAAIILLLLL
White Sox: Daniel Hudson and Holmberg for Edwin Jackson? WHAT
Dodgers: Lambo and McDonald for Dotel
4 1/2 years of DeWitt for 2 1/2 or Theriot = FAIIIILLLLL
Blue Jays: Wallace = Gose? Don't think so. Words like "runs fast" and "swagger" don't mask the fact that they got ripped off.
