Man, I just love coming home from school and hearing about a big trade. Some initial thoughts:

1. I'm still not sold on Colon being a Cy Young candidate this year, but we gave up nothing for him! Biddle is replaceable, and Liefer and Osuna have already been replaced. Kudos to Kenny Williams.

2. Rios looks like a nice signing, if cheap. His defense isn't great, but he can get on base reasonably well. Better option than Liefer, in my opinion.

3. Gordon looks like he'll have an ERA+ of around 110 or so. He can still strike guys out, and doesn't give up a lot of homers. Would the Sox be so bold as to give him a start now and then?

Yep, not a bad day at all.

Isn't it just great hearing this Amazing News right when you jump on the computer. I heard it on the Score and thought they were jokin', but guest not. Rios amazing pick-up!
