So the Mets trade got shot down, which is nice. I really dont want Davis to get traded, he is a beast in the making.
The second trade is official. The Rangers trade Gerald"OMFT"Laird to the Cincinnati Reds for Homer"Duh" Bailey.
On to todays trade.
Breaking News: the Texas Rangers Trade RF Milton Bradley and German Duran to the Arizona Diamondbacks for minor leaguers Jarrod Parker and Brooks Brown.
Duran could be a possible stop gap at second if they let Hudson go after this year, but who knows, Duran could take advantage of playing everyday. He should hit for average, right? Bradley is the big RF bat they lack right now. They have the pitching to go deep into the playoffs, but do they have the offense?
At first glance, you might say why they hell would they trade their #1 prospect and another top 10 for a half a season of Bradley and a possible utilty infielder? Bradley is getting the 'Backs two picks if he leaves and with an already stacked system their GM isn't afraid to make a deal for an impact bat.
Would you do it?
