What's the benefit of trading Stewart for basically nothing? Does it clear a spot on the 40-man?

I'm not complaining about the trade, I didn't expect anything greater than a bag of balls for Stewart, just curious.

Stewart was a non-roster invitee. It's a nothing move.

Didn't NYY release him like five months ago?

Yep they did. Which means we won't be getting much in return for him now.

But we did them a favor, which means that we should get a favor in return. I guess that's what "future considerations" means.

Just in time for everyone who got rid of their Swisher jerseys to have to go back and buy new ones.

:comiskey
That's how you do it!

Who else is excited about the potential "Let's go Corky" chant at US Cellular this year?

I too am happy that we are probably going to have a man named Corky on the roster. How can you not be excited about cheering for Corky? He is roster worthy based on his name alone! :tongue:

Does someone see something in Corky, that I am missing? He has less than 400 MLB ABs, and is in his 30s.

Not really, though he's been hitting well this spring, not sure what quality his defense is.

Probably the best of the bunch the Sox have unless you wanted to plug Armstrong in, but I can understand giving him another year in the minors.
