I have been sitting around since yesterday afternoon, sucking my teeth over the lack of deadline deals by the Reds.
But this morning, I came across the details (courtesy of Jason Stark) on what might be the worst trade since, well, The Trade, at least...maybe worse.
You might have heard that the Pirates got Matt Morris from the Giants. What absolutely stunned me was that Stark wrote that the Giants were offering to pick up major amounts of Morris' salary (9 mil) just to get rid of him for a bag of batting practice balls.
The Pirates apparently swooped in, offered them a decent prospect, a PTBNL, AND picked up all of Morris' salary.
Suddenly, Wayne looks positively competent.
