Oh My Word! A Trade!

Neal Cotts heading north for David Aardsma and minor league reliever Carlos Vasquez (link).

Vasquez, for the first time, was a reliever this season, and put up decent numbers -- 91 Ks in a little under 85 IP (combined numbers between high-A and AA), and an ERA around 3.00. Problem is, he's turning 24 very soon.

I'll examine it in more detail a bit later, but a small thumbs up to Kenny as of right now, and it's pretty much a lateral move at this point.
