Pending physicals, the Yankees just acquired Damaso Marte and Xavier Nady (sportsillustrated.cnn.com) from Pittsburgh for Russ Ohlendorf (who they got from Arizona in the Randy Johnson trade), Jose Tabata, and two others from the low minors. Tabata was one of the crown jewels of the Yankee farm system, recognized as a 5-tool guy, but has run into disciplinary trouble lately, and rumored to be a prospect who could be moved for these reasons.
I guess I like the trade on the surface, and can only hope that this marks the end of the Latroy Hawkins is a New York Yankees Pitcher off-off-Broadway show.
Padres got a hell of a haul. Wonder if another move is on the way as they have Alonso and Rizzo at first base. Volquez should do well pitching half his games in Petco. Grandal could be a star. Reds did well too but I love the deal for the Padres.
