Miggy Tejada– to the Padres, will apparently get time at short. This is only fantasy-relevant because Miguel Tejada is a name. He’s probably most useful in NL-Only leagues now
Austin Kearns– aquired by the Yankees for a Derek Jeter signed bat. He’s having a great year and is headed to a launching pad… and fewer AB’s. Still, he’s worth watching
Roy Oswalt– Lost his first start in the Illadelph, but looks to not continue his losing ways for a better team (13 losses????? Really!?That’s Bonderman-esque!)
Dan Haren– Got doinked his first start for the Halos, see Oswalt situation for new team/hope for fewer losses scenario
Jorge Cantu, Cristian Guzman– Aquired by the Texas Rangers. Classic case of great deadline dealing for the stretch run (you watch, the Rangers are dangerous this year), very boring for fantasy. Both are middling players in the fantasy realm, Texas is a great hitters park, yadda yadda yadda, are you really that excited about either player?
–Dan Hudson, however, is going to the D-Backs. Who play in the NL West. Where apparently it is against the rules to try and score more than 5 runs a game or something (Dodgers, what gives?)
Mike Jacobs– Just kidding
Lots of deals to come. Stay tuned in to see if the likes of Jose Bautista (likely), Corey Hart (not so much), and Dunn move. Also, Ted Lily may be involved, going to that NL West… I’ll keep you posted.
P.S. I know Berkman is heading to the Yanks, but that hasn’t been made official yet. And I’m in denial. $tupid Yankees.
