Snider traded for Brad Lincoln. On the fence with this one. Lincoln was a 4th overall pick, so he must have been good at one point. Right...?

M's and jays swap Thames for Delabar... Don't really see the point. Thanes is a great prospect, but the Mariners are overflowing in the OF. In other news 5 game win streak!!

Segura's actually a VERY good prospect. #1 in the Angels Farm System in fact. Hellweg is the 7th best prospect and Pena is # 14 on their list. Segura will be the SS of the future for the Brewers. Not that bad a return when you get your future SS and a couple of solid prospects for a possible 2 months of Greinke who might not have re-signed in Milwaukee anyway.

That said I hope Cherington makes a splash. Hopefully by picking up a big-name Short Stop or Starting Pitcher if those reports are true. Really just hoping he can find a way to get rid of Beckett.
Just because an athlete says he loves the city doesn't mean he'll re-sign there. How many times did LeBron say he loved Cleveland? Greinke was a pending FA so it's even a gamble for the Angels to trade for him. Giving up the best the best prospect in your organization for a possible 2-month rental is a big risk. I'd say the Brewers did very well on this deal.
-----------------
Hoping the Red Sox will move Beckett today. Cherington says he's not trying to move him, but that doesn't mean he won't. Saltalamacchia's names has come up in rumors as well. Not sure why he'd be traded. Probably the best power-hitting catcher in the AL. Trade Shoppach instead and call-up Lavarnway.

Good to get a win against the Rangers tonight. Always nice to beat one of the better teams.

Great to see Crawford hitting the ball too. Hopefully he'll keep it up!

R.I.P. Johnny Pesky. Not only a Red Sox Legend, but a true baseball legend as well.

He will be dearly missed.

Very happy for Hernandez! Always nice to see him do well.

3rd No-Hitter at Safeco this season. 4th time the Rays have been No-Hit since 2009.

Ah, why does my home team always have to be on the receiving end of these things...

Either way I'm happy for Hernandez, but with the Rays' pitching staff I can't help but be a little jealous, considering they've been a big part of the Rays' resurgence since the All Star Game.
