Can I get a link? (Sorry, I'm sure you are correct if you heard it on the broadcast, just hard to believe the Sox would give up Olivo).

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

Rotoworld reported it...and it's on ESPN's main page.

The CWS are really sacrificing a lot to get to the playoffs this year....Reed is a future star and Alomar is no longer an everyday catcher. Great job by the Mariners, Garcia was easily expendable and they just got a key young OFer. ;-D

just go to MLB.com



......runnnn supporttt finalllyyyy!!!!

edited: Just to add some thoughts, I think it is a great trade for the White Sox and a pretty good one for the M's. Olivo is a nice young C, but pitching is more important to win in the playoffs. M's are getting a nice prospect in Reed, though I think he is very overrated as a prospect. To me he will be an above avg. player (he makes me think erstad) but never a star IMO.

Free Miguel Olivo. With everyday playing time he could be a top tier option ;-D

How will Olivo fare in seattle? Worth a gamble over LaRue?

not so quick..

Freddy's home'away splits


IP HR BB K ERA WHIP BAA

58.2 2 53 2.61 1.06 .198
48.1 6 29 3.91 1.37 .278

draw your own conlusions... Safeco is the best pitcher's park in the AL... the M's defense is also amongst the top in the AL... methinks his era and ratios are prolly not gonna improve from now on.

.. therefore my take is if you dont specifically need wins, this'd be an extremely "grand" time to sell high on Freddy. it'd be worth holding on to him if you do need the W's but still consider if someone overvalues him cos of this move.
[size=10]Manny Ramirez....$20 million
Pedro Martinez....$17.5 million
Curt Schilling...$12 million (and a $2 million bonus)
Never hearing a Yankee fan chant 1918 again...priceless. [/size]

What does this trade do for Raffy Soriano? Could we see him take the 5th spot once he comes back after the break?

I dunno about Olivo being a top C now. He goes from a great line up to a pathetic one and from a hitters park to a pitchers one. Not to mention won't he have to contend w/ Dan Wilson?

I agree, this trade actually hurts Olivo's value IMO.
