Beltran watch is over...

Recommended Posts

nice little 3 way deal here everyone gets what they want without giving much up

 

Royals get

 

Teahan 3rd (OAK)

Wood P (OAK)

Buck C (HOU)

 

two positions they were looking for plus pitcher ... and they move Beltran.

 

A's get

 

Dotel P (HOU)

... some $$$ from KC

 

they get a good pitcher to fill their main need (wish we would have taken a shot at dotel but this deal would have sweeter all the way around) ... and they have Chavez at 3rd for a long time so no need for Teahan who wont be ready till next year... A's need to win now.

 

 

Stros get:

 

Beltran OF (KC)

 

they get Beltran who has skills beyond belief and fill their only hole at center ... and Biggio who is a lesser defensive player in center moves to LF.

 

Astros possibly have the sickest team all around ... amazing

 

 

two words

 

GREAT ... TRADE :thumbup

 

:notworthy :notworthy :notworthy

the two positions they were looking for and got a good duo in return ... and beltran is finally gone.

The Royals got pitcher Mike Wood and 3B Mark Teahan from Oakland, and catcher John Buck from Houston

Well, the Astros made out like bandits, although I still don't think they'll win the division. This trade smells more of desperation than loading up...

its both

lets say they were desperate to load up

 

just a great trade for houston. they only lose a couple of prospects and can easily move brad lidge to closer

desperation?

 

... desperation?

 

anytime you can get talent in the form of a guy like Beltran and only give up Octavio Dotel and a catcher prospect you are doing a good job ... that is certainly not desperation

 

... plus Brad Lidge seems to be doing AOK in his new job

I too am glad the Beltran sweeps our over.

 

I dont think this is a good trade for Houston. Yes, I said that. They will have a hard time keeping Beltran beyond this season. And I dont think Beltran is the answer - they just lost Dotel and the Astros need to address their bullpen issues. As of right now, they dont have a real chance of winning their division. Why? Offense is NOT the problem for the Astros. The Cubs have better pitching - and it will only get better as the season goes on and they have a pretty solid offensive team. The Cards STILL have a better offensive unit than the Astros, but not the pitching.

 

And with that hill out in CF, I dont see Beltran lasting too long.
