Around the Majors: Plenty of trades and signings

The ATM reports are finally back. The maintenance department at my apartments were doing some kind of work at the start of the week and they did something that knocked out my internet connection. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get a technician here to fix the problem until this morning.

1) The Rangers traded 2B Alfonso Soriano to the Nationals for OF-1B Brad Wilkerson, OF Termel Sledge and minor league P Armando Galarraga.

“Lee Sinins’ Sabermetric Encyclopedia is best reason yet developed to own a computer. I think I must own a copy of every baseball encyclopedia there is or ever was, and occasionally I find that I still need to pull out one of the others, but not very often; the Sabermetric Encyclopedia covers 97% of my needs. Whether I’m working or playing, calculating or daydreaming, the Sabermetric Encyclopedia pops up to help out. I turn it on in the morning; I turn it off when the house is on fire. Otherwise, I’m using it.”–Bill James
