Watching the A's vs. Giants, and they are interviewing the Giants GM. They were talking about the trade they just made (Travis Blackley for Jason Ellison), and he talked about how it got complicated because Cincinnati jumped in at the last minute to try to get Ellison. I found that VERY intetersting.

Krivsky is indeed out there trying to get a right handed outfield bat.

FYI, here is the tradebit for Rotoworld.

Giants acquired LHP Travis Blackley from the Mariners for outfielder Jason Ellison.

Blackley was a top pitching prospects before tearing his labrum and missing the 2005 season. He returned last year to go 9-12 with a 4.06 ERA, 149 H and 105/50 K/BB in 155 IP, most of them coming at Double-A. He has yet to recover his velocity and he wasn't a hard thrower in the first place, so he's turned into a long shot to have a career. Still, it's better than losing Ellison, who was out of options, for nothing.

I had a feeling I would end up hearing this somewhere when I read about the trade and said to myself "I'm sure glad we didn't trade for Ellison".

This is worth a bump. Pitiful irony.

Well, I'm sure glad that trade didn't happen! Oh, wait...we got Ellison...

Hey he's good enough to play in both games of a double header, so the potential is clearly there.
