No Boone for you (plus a really exciting trade)...

New, 4 comments

Man, you complain about no activity, then the next time you turn around, things have just gone all crazy out there on the transaction wire...

Two big pieces of news in one article...first, fears of Bret Boone bringing his craptacularness to Texas have been alleviated, with the Mets having signed Boone to a minor league deal.

What purpose or function Boone could possibly serve in New York is beyond me...but I'm just glad we're not going to be exposed to him in a Rangers uniform...

The Mets also trade Jae Seo to the Dodgers for Duaner Sanchez, with a minor leaguer for each also switching sides.

Seo was someone who had been kicked around as a possible Plan D (for Desperate) option in the Rangers rotation, and Duaner Sanchez has a cool name (I think I'm going to start calling myself Duaner from now on), so I figured I'd mention it.
