    Chris Young traded! To the As...

    They gave up underwhelming Cliff Pennington, and 22 year old Yordy Cabrera in a deal that saw heath Bell go from MIA to AZ. MIA gets the prospect (Cabrera) and AZ gets Pennington and Bell. As get Chris Young.

    Cabrera doesn't seem impressive. Pennington isn't. And the As get a guy who could turn it around, and be a .250/25 HR guy.

    I've wanted Young on the Sox for over a year, seems comparable to giving up Iglesias and Aviles, which doesn't seem like much. That package of Sox players actually seems better.

    Oh well, Beane strikes again, and now has 5 OFers (Seth Smith, Crisp, Cespedes, Reddick, Young) and I think it's fair to assume at least 2 of them will have very productive 2013s.

    Hey are you not that guy who started a fantasy baseball league earlier this year? What happened with that anyway? Did you win?

    Cabrera is a good kid -- the kind of kid you root for. He was a high school teammate of Chicago's Chris Sale and Toronto's Drew Hutchison.

    It doesn't look like he's developing enough as a hitter but maybe he'll be a late-bloomer.

    It is importantt that Oakland got a CF.  I mean if Crisp got hurt, and Cespedes got hurt, that would leave them with only Collin Cowgill and Jeff Fiorentino  at the position.   And Reddick.

     

    I can see why they felt they needed the depth.
