So Goes the Least Interesting Trade Deadline Ever

punto_sunglasses_april-7-2013Well, that was boring. Not that we really expected the Dodgers to do much, but… Bud Norris to Baltimore? Justin Maxwell to Kansas City, for some reason? Okay, Ian Kennedy to San Diego was mildly interesting, but talk about a total snoozefest. Thanks for that second wild card, MLB, really appreciated, as well as GMs in places like Philadelphia and Seattle who don’t seem to understand when it’s time to sell.

That’s better, I suppose, than some move that we all despised, and we briefly worried about that when Joc Pederson wasn’t included in the Chattanooga lineup today. If anything at all notable happened this afternoon, it was Tampa Bay ace Matt Moore going to the disabled list with left elbow soreness, which means the Dodgers will avoid him when the Rays come to town next week.

Ah, well. Still have Clayton Kershaw against Hiroki Kuroda tonight. Stand down… at least until August waiver moves.

Ned Colletti's Answering Machine:


Ned? Ned? It's Stan again. I want to apologize. I think I might have overreacted a little. Whew! You can't blame me, okay? Your wife, she called me, freaking out because one of the kids were told they were going to the desert, not out for dessert. So, everything's fine. Please forgive us. No harm, no foul.

Drew Butera might be one of the worst players in baseball.  He's going to be 30 years old next week.

Career batting line of  182/230/263 over 534 plate apperances

Yesterday it was reported that he can only put 20% of his body weight on the ankle still. Seems like he's still a ways off.

@PagansOedipalComplex Giants not trading any of their guys was also dumb. They should have been looking to blow it up and rebuild this year but instead didnt.  Now they are stuck for the coming seasons of being mediocre.

@JoeyE  @Volcanic wow he's only hitting 217/294/320 over his minor league career. Its amazing this guy still has a job. Usually guys like that are released, especially his age being in the minors.
