It Begins...

The Hot Stove League is officially underway!

The Royals shipped off Mark Teahen to their division rivals in exchange for infielders Chris Getz and Josh Fields. I didn't know Chris Getz existed until about an hour ago. Josh Fields is best known in baseball card circles as one of the prospects who got a super stealth short printed variation card in 2007 Topps Series 1 Wal-Mart packs. Anyone who has opened a pack of cards in the past 4 years knows exactly who Mark Teahen is. He's the Royal not named Grienke or Gordon. Now he's a Sock.

Nope, I didn't forget about Aki, traded to the Pirates for a rookie reliever. Awww yeah, let the filings and tradings and signings begin!

Umm, wow! What?! I knew Josh Fields was on the block, but Getz??!! He will be missed. Expect more moves from the Sox. This is what I get for sleeping in today.

Very nice cards my friend! That Sox trades surprises me, the Aki trade infuriates me. Teahen has a ton of potential at the plate!

It's pretty sad that I get my Royals news from baseball card blogs. Thanks for the info. I'm not even sure what I think about the trade, yet.

Nice card. You didn't waste any time on that one.

Fields is the former QB right?

Wahoo! We got Aki! And new uniforms! Did I mention I'm amazed by how fast Topps got these stealth '74 insert cards out in U&H!
