I've seen this posted elsewhere in threads, but I thought it might deserve it's own diary.
As usual, I'm vaguely annoyed by Rotoworld. If Crisp's defense in CF is as mediocre as is reported, then he really wouldn't be much of an upgrade on BA (Crisp is on fire lately, but has a .710 OPS for the season and a low .322 OBP). It's only 60 ABs, but Anderson looks to have outplayed Crisp in July. And Garland, IMO, shouldn't be lumped in with Vazquez and Garcia. He isn't tradeable inasmuch as he has a no-trade clause, but he's pitched pretty well for a while now.
And in Mark Gonzales' Tribune column:
Aaron [Rowand] was a great sparkplug who gave the Sox plenty of energy, but he also hit into his share of double plays, as Ozzie pointed out earlier this week. The Phillies asked for Josh Fields to get Gordon.
Sort of interesting. I'm assuming Gordon's age and cotract were the main stumbling points.
