Travis Blackley acquired

  • P Travis Blackley acquired via trade from Houston Astros for PTBNL or $ [ Link ]
  • OF Manny Ramirez released from AAA [ Link ]

NOTES:  I’m not sure what to make of Blackley.  They must have seen something, as you don’t bring in a pitcher from the worst team in baseball unless you’re sure of something.

Also, the Manny Ramirez experiment is over.  If he could hit well enough, he would have been in the majors by now.  One has to think he’s done for good now.   Hey, I believe we still own the technical rights to Ricky Williams (yes, the NFL Ricky Williams).  What’s he doing?  :)
