The  Cubs have traded pitcher Ted Lilly and second baseman Ryan Theriot to the Dodgers in exchange for infielder Blake DeWitt and two minor-league pitchers.

The Red Sox have traded Ramon Ramirez to the Giants, according to media reports.

The best player in the Braves/Royals deal is Farnsworth.

If you are a playoff contender, you should not have faith in Kyle Farnsworth. The Braves will regret that trade.

So far Park being released is the best thing they've done.  I'm not exactly enamored with these other moves.

They've had him before, so they clearly haven't learned their lesson.

Blanco is the best player in the trade. He can't hit for any power, but he can be useful.

Giants trade John Bowker and Joe Martinez to Pittsburgh for Lefty Javier Lopez.

I like the Pirates being on the receiving end of a deal involving a team dumping players for once with the Arizona deal. Got a decent catcher for some bench guys who weren't doing shit and a middle reliever.

I really hate the Sox trade of Hudson. KW keeps trading all of the young pitching prospects of the Sox. Jackson better be able to get fixed by Cooper quick and return to his form from 08 and 09.

Williams was trying to package Jackson and others for Adam Dunn. He lost the poker game and ended up with Jackson.

If it is true he stayed because he has a child with a serious illness it would at lest make more sense.

I didn't know that was the case.

FWIW, there's nothing in the Chicago papers about a sick child motivating Lee to stay in Chicago.

He's quoted as saying he "agonized" over the decision and talked to some friends on the Angels, so he at least considered accepting the trade.

Did I hear correctly that they got cash in the deal along with Woods? If so, it just goes to show how underrated Cashman is.
