The Blue Sox made their first trade of the season a couple of days ago, sending promising young slugger (and Top 7 prospect) Travis Snider to the Water Buffaloes for John Lackey. I haven't activated Lackey yet, but will do so soon, as soon as I figure out whether to take his last start. He got the win, but he also gave up four earned runs in five innings, with only three strikeouts. I could certainly use the win, but I just crawled out of last in era (into 8th) and don't want to add on to that. I guess I've got some math to do. Plus, I'm waiting to see who to drop. McCarthy (active Blue Sock) faces Dontrelle (non-active Blue Sock) tonight. Depending on how that goes, I think I know what I'm going to do.
