Wow actual Baseball News
It is not official yet but the Chicago White Sox have traded pitcher Javier Vasquez to the Atlanta Braves for shortstop Brent Lillibridge and minor league catcher Tyler Flowers who had an outstanding Arizona Fall league batting 387 with 12 hrs in 20 games. The Sox also have chosen two other players who have not been identified yet. The Braves are also going to recieve LH reliever Boone Logan. If i were the Mets i would be wary of Atlanta attempting to get better and of course they have the World Champ Phillies in their division. The Anaheim Angels GM said today that Mark Texiera is still their priority and they will do everything they can to keep him and dont expect anything before the winter meetings which will open up on sunday evening really monday morning. Contrary to reports they will not come near the Yankees offer and aren't even thinking of him right now. It looks like CC isn't getting what he thinks and will have to come to the Yankees sooner then later. I expect the action to heat up next week in the hot Las Vegas Desert at least with the winter meetings it should become hot. I expect a slew of trades this year with the tough market and once CC and Tex sign the rest will follow. Everyone stay calm, be patient we will be getting some juice very shortly
