I didn't mention the prospect that Texas received, but if what I've heard is accurate, he's got a long road ahead of him before he even thinks about contributing to a major league team.

They dealt...for a reliever who throws hard

No, not really. Pretty funky delivery, though.

Yeah, I took that out, NTNGod. I guess you caught it before I did!

Have any interest in acquiring Jon Garland, too?

Nice post.

I agree with Spivey.

The only way you can think this trade good for Texas is to enter an alternate mental reality. You say to yourself: this guy Adam Eaton is pure baseball goodness, a diamond still in the rough, maybe, but he was already striking out major-leaguers when this beanpole of a Chris Young was writing his senior thesis and pouring balsamic vinaigrette on salads at his eating club.

And the spar of hope to cling to is that pitchers are so unpredictable that Eaton has a non-trivial chance of outperforming Young in 2006. Non-huge, but non-trivial :)
