That was because when Nady and Marte were traded Friday night, Nady actually started the game, played one inning and was pulled from the game while he was on deck. We later found out from a guy sitting behind us who checked online through his BlackBerry that they had been traded to the Spankees. So when Russell decided to empty the bench when they were down 8-1, we started joking that they had all been traded - LOL. I actually heard from an usher during the game who said that Bay and Sanchez were traded, but that turned out to be false since both were in the lineup this afternoon, though Sanchez did leave the game today due to back spasms.
