Not all were for trading EE. But many were and there were reports that mentioned his name in trade talks. Since his return from the DL (July 3) in 11 games...
> 38 AB, 15 H, 3 HR, 7 EBH, .395 BA

Hot bat. Fluke or a sign that the 26-yr-old can be a force in the future for this team? Maybe "it" has snapped into place and he has broken on through to the other side. Many have waited for "it", many weren't sure but hoped "it" would happen, some wanted to unload him. The deadline looms and his production since his return from the DL might have changed the mindset of the FO.
I stick with him. There is no one in the minors who can help and money can be better spent on other positions. I hope "it" has happened.
Nice work since the return, Edwin.
