Trading Deadline Delirium

I love trading deadline day. I have the Royal Rooters and Sons of Sam Horn message boards up (when they are available) while listening to WEEI online.

Except for game broadcasts, I haven’t bothered to listen to this radio station in quite a while because I despite Dennis and Callahan. But Dale Arnold with guest host Rob Bradford have been pleasant and informative enough (given the lack of action on the Red Sox’s part... so far) and better than the Big Show’s constant, stultifying yammering.

But I’ll make an exception and listen to WEEI for today. Otherwise, I’ll be at the park and dumbfounded as to why Andruw Jones is in a Red Sox uniform.

Yesterday Boston did trade right-handed pitching prospect Luis Mendoza to the Rangers for right-handed relief pitcher Bryan Corey. To make room for the 32-year old, Matt Clement was transferred to the 60-day disabled list. Too bad about Mendoza, as I will always cheer my fellow window-wearers.

Updates as events warrant.

2:11 PM: Sean McAdam on WEEI passed on the Buster Olney tidbit (Stop rolling your eyes! I can see that from here. Yeah, never was Gammons more missed....) about the Red Sox being in on talks for Miguel Tejada.

2:53 PM: Kip Wells? Do we want all the questionable pitchers named “Wells”? Would the Pirates pitcher be an Arroyo or Wakefield or a Suppan? We might find out in an hour or so if this deal goes through.
