|King Felix is eccstatic to hear the news he'll be playing for a real contender this season.|
Jose Bautista - RF/3B
Koji Uehara - RP
Jeremy Guthrie - SP
Felix Hernandez - SP
Darren Oliver - RP
Ben Zobrist - RF/2B/1B
Other details: As Guthrie was scheduled to get the next start for my squad, he is eligible to start immediately for Nick's next game. King Felix needed to rest 3 more games before his next start, so I had to spot start Brian Duensing in Game 1 vs. Keith in my series immediately following the trade, followed by my normal #2 and #3 starters (Pineiro and Vargas). Therefore, effective my next series, King Felix will get the next start, falling in as my #4 starter for the remainder of the regular season.
A classic Big Bat for Big Arm trade - with some nice secondary pieces attached. Both teams win? I think so. Look for Nick's Bautista-Thome-Ortiz gauntlet we'll have to run (yikes).
