Braves - Acquired Rafael Soriano
Atlanta Braves - Acquired P Rafael Soriano from the Seattle Mariners for P Horacio Ramirez.
Isn’t this against MLB rule 21 or something? Apparently, Buzzie’s Other Idiot Son was getting upset that the Angels and Astros were hogging all the stupid. This is one of those trades that are so bad that you can actually justify it better by pretending that the offending GM is making the trade as part of some James Bond Bad Guy Masterplan. And not the Fleming Bond, the Bad John Gardner Bond that fought an evil ice cream manufacturer and an evil text-based video game programmer.
What can you say about this trade? Soriano will be awesome for Atlanta and Ramirez will suck rocks for the M’s. It’s all so anti-climactic - why nurse Soriano through 2+ wasted seasons, finally get him back as an elite reliever, and then dump him for Ramirez? It’s the equivalent of returning from your tour in Iraq and, upon coming home, catching up on all the reruns of Wings that your TIVO was catching off of USA for you.
