Thats funny, I saw LaRoche's name scrolling across the screen for the Dodgers the other day and my first thought was we unloaded our LaRoche and I missed it.....lol

Certainly more promising than the Nady trade.

Andy LaRoche- AAA in 39 games- .293 5 HR 28 RBI, has also seen some decent time in the majors

Craig Hansen- AAA 1-0 1.62 ERA 16 2/3 IP 5BB 17 K- if it was him they were talking about throws 97 MPH

Bryan Morris- High A SP- 2-4 3.20 ERA 81.1 IP 31 BB 72 K- 20 year old prospect for the dodgers

Brandon Moss- AAA Pawtucket 43 Gms .282 8 HR 30 RBI hit his first major league Home Run in japan at the beginning of the game

Two former 1st-round picks from the Red Sox (Moss, Hansen) who are both major-league ready and the Dodgers' top prospect (LaRoche) and one of their top pitching prospects (Morris).

Solid deal for the Bucs here. Good job, Neal!

The Red Sox, however, got completely hosed. Two 1st rounders, Manny AND $7 million cash for Jason Bay???

Morris is coming off Tommy John surgery. I had high hopes for Andy LaRoche, but just like every other "cant miss" Dodger-prospect (see: Ashley, Billy or Garcia, Karim or Brock, Greg) it just didn't pan out. Hopefully for the Bucs, Andy will blossom like Paul Konerko did once he left the Blue-crew.

Bienvenidos Manny!!!

Not going to happen any time soon. The Pirates pretty much own him for the next 4 seasons.
