    Ryan Franklin deal has been completed...

    I did not see this posted anywhere. If it has been feel free to delete/combine the threads:

    This is from rotoworld:

    Phillies acquired RHP Zac Stott from the Reds as the player to be named to complete the Ryan Franklin deal.
    Stott, 23, had a 2.53 ERA and a 22/10 K/BB ratio in 32 innings of relief for Single-A Sarasota. He's probably not a future major leaguer.
    Matta = Really good

    How can you trade the future Trevor Hoffman for this?

    It is revenge for Wayne Granger for Tom Hall deal.

    This morning's Enquirer said that this guy was selected by the Reds in the 27th rd of this year's draft. I thought you could not trade recently drafted guys for a whole year. Am I mistaken? I thought this year's draftees could not be traded until June of 2007.

    That's wrong. Stott has been in the organization for a couple of years.

    http://www.thebaseballcube.com/playe...ac-Stott.shtml

    Stott was doing fairly well at Sarasota, but I agree that he wasn't even the prospect Abe Woody or Carlos Guevara is. And both of those guys are #25-30 types in a Baseball America-style list.

    OK, that makes sense. I never take to the bank what is written in the Enquirer anymore
