DENVER (AP) - The Colorado Rockies found the right-handed hitter they were seeking, acquiring Matt Murton from the Oakland Athletics on Wednesday for minor league infielder Corey Wimberly.

"We don't have a ton of right-handed bats in the organization," Rockies general manager Dan O'Dowd explained. "We like his athleticism and love him as a kid."

Murton has a .288 career average with 28 homers and 106 RBIs. He was among four players Oakland acquired from the Chicago Cubs in the Rich Harden trade in July.

Man, I hope they got some pitching for him. That Owings kid might be worth a look.

KLW, I see you're in New England. Are you getting your news brought to you by Paul Revere on horseback?

I would imagine this post has more to do with the fact that the Rockies optioned Murton to AAA on June 5th. Maybe KLW sees Muton as the answer to what is troubling this offense. :D

Yeah I knew the article was old, I just thought the trade deserved more discussion. yeah that's the ticket. I was told about the trade by my close friend, Morgan Fairchild, yeah that's the ticket.

Wow. I actually saw the link to the article on the page with Foxsports.com's article on Vick getting released. The link structure is the same as is on the top right of the page of the Murton piece. The Favre article link could have been a hint but he is always telling someone that he is retiring. Can't say I am following Murton that closely at this point though I did look at him as a target a week or two back and saw that he is not setting the world on fire.

Stop joking about the Reds trading Dunn. That's not funny, I'd hate to see their offense without him.

Well didn't he ride around yelling "The Reds are coming! The Reds are coming!" or something like that.

You know I start a thread on a possibly new interesting stat and get no responses. This will have 5 pages by dinner time.
