We’ve got a new feature here at MLBTR called Baseball Blogs Weigh In. It’s pretty self-explanatory. I link to top-notch blogs giving their take on recent moves.
- Aaron Gleeman looks closely at the big Delmon for Garza swap and finds the Rays the victors. One major factor cited is Jason Bartlett’s defense being far superior to Brendan Harris’. Throw in Eduardo Morlan and I see where Gleeman’s coming from.
- Matthew Cerrone isn’t thrilled with the Lastings Milledge deal, but he at least sees where the Mets are coming from and trusts Omar Minaya’s judgment.
- Joe Pawlikowski makes a case for Andruw Jones over Aaron Rowand, if the Yankees create a center field vacancy by trading Melky Cabrera.
- Larry Borowsky doesn’t hate the Cesar Izturis signing for the Cards; he just thinks Izturis is the same player as Brendan Ryan.
