As I sit here today, picking up the pieces, remembering the good times with our pal the Gentleman Masher, it became quite obvious that this will not be the end of this story. Sometime, could be May, could be June, maybe even late April, Kenny Williams is going to wake up and realize, that yes, he is the general manager of an American League baseball team. It will be at that point he will begin to understand that putting together arguably the best pitching staff in baseball only to see Mark Kotsay play on a regular basis was a very poor decision. Possibly the worst decision of his career. And this is the same guy who traded Nick Swisher for Jeff Marquez & a pair of excellent goggles, so that's saying something.
At this time, he's going to start looking for a DH replacement. So the question is, who leaves? Who comes in? When does it go down?
Prize as always.. bragging rights.
I'll start with June 1st, Dayan Viciedo, random non-Hudson pitcher in a deal for Dan Uggla. I know.. he's right handed, but he has reverse splits, so he'd be fine, not that we can be picky at this point anyways. Getting expensive for the Marlins, if they are out of it at all, he will be moved. Could do some damage at the cell, and Ozzie can have a guy who can technically play the field.
