Huh.. a lefty singles hitter? I'm all over that.

Well the meaningless Internet rumors are starting to fly. Everybody has this Hickey piece, but I'll go ahead and add my two cents. So we trade Freddy, who's been our best starter so far for Johnny Damon and BK Kim. The Red Sox then go ahead and sent Freddy to Kansas City for the best player (Non A-Rod division) in the AL. What would this leave us with?

Well, Johnny Damon is a very nice player, and would certainly upgrade the CF defense over Winn, though his arm is nothing special either. Unfortunately, Damon is exactly the kind of player the M's have to many of already: a singles hitter. This team doesn't need yet another top-of-the order guy. We need power damnit! Oh, and Kim is $5 million a year reliever with a rapidly expanding rep as a head case. Just what we need.
