Default Royal pain in the @$$!

The Royals made a very good trade today:

Quote:

Royals acquired RHP Denny Bautista from the Orioles for RHP Jason Grimsley.
An outstanding start for Royals GM Allard Baird, who figures to trade several veterans for prospects over the next six weeks. Bautista's stock has dropped a bit this year, in part because he was found to be two years older than his listed age of 21. Still, he throws in the mid-90s and has a quality curveball. If he fails to develop as a starter, he'll probably be a great reliever. Even if the Orioles know something about his arm that we don't, the Royals still did very well here. Jun. 21 - 10:50 pm et

Orioles acquired RHP Jason Grimsley from the Royals for RHP Denny Bautista.
And we have an early contender for stupidest move of the year. The Orioles aren't going anywhere, and Grimsley is a 36-year-old middle reliever eligible for free agency at the end of the year. Just because the Orioles have a lot of nice young arms right now doesn't mean they can just give them away. This is simply a terrible move from Jim Beattie and Mike Flanagan, and it should leave Orioles fans concerned about what will happen when the team is ready to contend. Jun. 21 - 10:46 pm et
Looks like the trading market might soon be opening up...

I sure hope that KW isnt trying too hard to get Garcia and totally not looking any where else. Bautista wouldnt have been bad....certainly better than Jackson or Cliff.

Where's the quote from? It's right on the money.

speaking of rotoworld, if you look at the sox roster, it lists Shingo as being -65 years old. interesting.

But neither of those teams are going to make the playoffs.

I believe Bautista is Pedro Martinez' cousin.

Grimsley was one of the relievers I had hoped the Sox would be interested in acquiring on the cheap. It is a bad move for the O's but would have been a good move for a team in contention.
