The Aardsma Trade
Seriously, I think Jack is trying to do whatever possible to make sure we write as many positive things about him as we can. When the Red Sox DFA’d Aardsma a few days ago, I wrote a post about how the M’s should make a deal for him, then said “ehh, screw it, it’s a few hundred words on something that isn’t going to happen.”
I even lobbied last March for the M’s to pickup Aardsma, as I think he’s got potential to be a pretty decent reliever. This is the kind of buying low on a guy with a big arm that can pay off in significant ways.
Yet another move where we can just sit back and say “yep, our new GM is awesome.”
