Wow!! This is one of the more crazy trades I have seen. The Padres traded submarining reliever Cla Merideth for 31 year old utility infielder (with 31 big league at bats) Oscar Salazar!! This is seriously becoming a little annoying. Does Merideth really have that little value? Twins need a reliever, don’t they? Twins sidewinder Pat Neshek won’t be back until next year, right? Of course, now the Orioles have three relief pitchers that the Twins should be interested in. Merideth, Danny Baez and George Sherrill. The Twins must have no interest in Merideth because they could have matched the offer with guys like Matt Macri or Alejandro Machado! They could have sent both and they could compete with Luis Rodriguez for playing time at 2B.
