Looks like its to the Rangers. Dodgers better hope they have the pitching to get it done this year/Lee, Reed, and Webster are all all-stars.

Bowden has been comically wrong on just about everything.

the Yankees are apparently close to trading for Casey McGehee.
deadline is past, so they better be more than close.

EDIT: done deal, McGehee for Chad Qualls.

Dempster can't decide between east coast and west coast so he compromises with Texas. :-°

So I guess my NL Only FAAB is wasted this year. No decent additions... all the talent is headed for the AL. Dempster, Anibal, Infante, Greinke. And I already spent all my AL only FAAB. Is Travis Snider seriously the best fantasy player to shift to the NL? Surely I must be missing somebody.

Pirates got Chad Qualls... I mean, he wasn't terrible... in '09

Kind of shocked that the A's didn't make a move and that the Twins didn't move anybody other than Liriano.

Seems that prospects are worth their weight in gold plus some. Maybe its the economy and teams moving towards more player control, maybe its the emergence of youthful talent around baseball, who knows, but half the time a lot of these "big" prospects don't work out. I understand not moving a Profar, a Bundy, etc, but some of these mid level prospects teams were considering untouchable...interesting.

It could also be with the advent of social media fans are just that much closer to the action now.

Bottom line Phillies over-valued Pence when they got him.

.280 with 20-25 hrs, swings at everything and terrible D. Not the star they traded for.
