    No, you have it completely wrong. The actual deal:

    Minneapolis receives:
    Houston

    Houston receives:
    Minneapolis

    Minneapolis (er, I mean Houston) confirms.

    You guys are cluttering up the trade thread with your nonsense.
    - Yeah, you know, a white guy ... mustache ... about six-foot-three.
    - Awfully big mustache.

    It's threads like this that made Hollis leave the leeg.
    Blog is back. Get it while it still exists!

    Latest post from 10/6/17: Point/Counterpoint: Dogs - With so much turmoil over so many topics, I tackle one that is apparently okay to still discuss. It's not a ham-fisted analogy at all.

    This one is actually a real trade.

    New Orleans receives:
    SP Yasuhide Higuchi

    Chicago receives:
    1B Joselito Quico (AAA)
    SP Bo Arnold (A)
    4th-round draft pick

    Quico is probably ready right now, but he struggled mightily early in the season. When it became apparent that Steven Bailey remembered how to hit, he was sent to the minors to work on his swing. He is a walk-drawing machine who should also develop some pop and carries a good glove. He's tough to let go of, especially considering what he cost me: nothing. He was a scouting discovery out of the Philippines.

    Higuchi shores up the rotation and makes me feel a lot better about what is shaping up to be a real dogfight between three teams for the FL's two playoff spots. I can't expect Todd Housh to pick up the win giving up 15 baserunners in 5 innings very often.

    Just insert Higuchi into the #4 slot in the rotation. Thanks, chet!

    Confirmed. I was loath to part with Higuchi since he's been so good for us for so long and I think he has enough in the tank to be part of the next good Rage team. But, he's also on the wrong side of thirty, expensive, and I couldn't turn down such a strong offer.
