Trade Deadline Approaching

Blum Trade

We just acquired veteran infielder Geoff Blum from San Diego for minor league pitcher Ryan Meaux, a lefty at Class AA Birmingham.

Blum, who is hitting .241, is taking a red-eye to Baltimore tonight and will be there in time for Monday’s game.  A switch hitter, Geoff will give Ozzie some flexibility with his lineup and during the game.  Geoff can play second and third and has played the outfield and first base.

We will have to make a roster move to add Geoff to the 25-man team.

Still Working

Kenny and his group continue to make calls and to meet in our baseball operations conference room.  They will continue to work the phones until we pass the 3 pm (CT) deadline.

Thanks for the info. Any chance we can get a couple of deals that didn’t go thru? I hear the asking price from some teams are silly. Just wondering how silly. Keep up the good work, Scott.

as if ozzie didn’t juggle lineups enough already we get another utility type guy

I\’m rellay into it, thanks for this great stuff!
