Rotoworld:
The Indians have reportedly acquired Kenny Lofton from the Rangers for Max Ramirez.
Ramirez, who was picked up from the Braves for Bob Wickman last year, has a very good bat but probably isn't going to last at catcher. Especially if the Rangers also get Jarrod Saltalamacchia, they'll probably be trying Ramirez at first base in the minors pretty soon. He could be ready to hit in the majors by 2009.

It's not a bad deal, with Lofton at the top they have the option of moving Sizemore down to an RBI spot against right handers.

Though, their rotation is still a mess.

Sheesh... this guy has played for 9 different teams in the past 7 seasons.

11 total teams. I think the record is 12 teams by Mike Morgan?

The Dallas Morning News (http://rangers.beloblog.com/) also has the story.

The Indians gave up a catcher who was a starter in the future all stars game that was batting .300 plus and a bunch of homeruns. This for a 40-something guy with just as many RBI's.

And KW got a Dooby for Iguchi. :?:

Lofton was producing, Iguchi is not.

And as far as Lofton going back to CLE, well, third time may be a charm..... as he chases his quest to win a World Series.
