With 1 week until the trade deadline, the RCL total sits at 166 trades. Here are the latest:
RCL Original Recipe: The Kiwis plucked Carl Crawford from Freak Films for a couple of pitchers, Kyle Farnsworth & Daniel Hudson.
Patrons of Poonhoundery: In a 6-player deal, The Machine sent Ryan Howard, Lance Berkman, & Mariano Rivera to DC Dong Punchers for Gaby Sanchez, Andre Ethier, & Roy Halladay.
RCL 6: Ryan Dempster Sucks traded BJ Upton to My Gut Is Latos Intolerant for Dan Haren.
And, in Cracking The WHIP, I (The Vincibles) traded the 13th overall pick, Prince Fielder, to the league-leader, Bad Juju, for Tim Lincecum & Carlos Lee. I am desperately trying to get my ERA below 4! I've now given up Fielder, Boesch, and Pena for Lincecum, Bumgarner, and Liriano. The results so far:
Bumgarner: 20 IP///1 win/17 K/4.05/1.05.
Liriano: 24.1 IP///2 win/3.33/1.36
