The Yankees and Reds went through with the Boone-White for Claussen-cash-and-a-player-to-be-named-later deal after all. Jay Jaffe, The Futility Infielder thinks this is a terrible mistake and is presently somewhere in Alphabet City destroying furniture. (I’m sure we’ll hear more from him by tomorrow.)
“This will not stand. This aggression will not stand.”
Here are the trades that I know about, thanks to Lee Sinins:
1. The Yankees traded Robin Ventura to the Dodgers for a minor league pitcher and a minor league outfielder.
2. The Pirates traded P Jeff Suppan to the Redsox for prospect Freddy
Sanchez. The Redsox also get Brandon Lyon (damaged goods) back, “as well as the minor leaguers who were in the first trade go back to their old teams.”
3. The O’s moved Sidney Ponson to the Giants for Kurt Ainsworth and Damian Moss.
4. The D-Rays sold pitcher Al Levine to KC.
