Today, I traded Andrew Bailey and Travis Buck for Mike Lowell and Jason Frasor. I immediately dropped Frasor to activate John Lackey (recently traded for) from the D/L. I probably would have just dropped Brandon McCarthy (I would rather have Bailey than McCarthy) but had to drop someone to add Lackey, so I made the deal. Buck has frustrated the Blue Sox for well over 2 seasons now, so I'm happy to be rid of him. Maybe the change of scenery will change his luck.
Side note: I have two Twins hitters. They hung 20+ on the White Sox (no relation) today and my guys were a total of 0-2 with 3 walks. Ugh!
