The 'He's your problem now' trade

The Marlins and Rockies swapped struggling relievers Jorge Julio and Byung-Hyun Kim for each other today. Kim was 1-2 with a 10.50 ERA before going on the DL and was in a rehab stint at Colorado Springs. Julio was 0-2 with a 12.54 ERA.

The Twins decided to make Sidney Ponson somebody else's problem.

And Cleveland shipped Jason Davis to Seattle for a player to be named later.

Also, congratulations to the UCLA women's water polo team which won the NCAA Championship today, defeating Stanford 5-4 in the final. The championship was the 100th in UCLA's history and the Bruins are the first school to hit triple figures in this category.

I was under the impression that a player on the DL couldn't be traded. Did the Rockies "activate" Kim and then immediately deal him?

That is not correct. The A's picked up Chris Denofria despite him being injured for the whole season.

I probably made that assumption because you rarely see guys on the DL dealt. It's probably too risky of a move unless you're acquiring a non-factor like a Denorfia.

I believe Chris Denorfia should stay away from the majors because I cannot spell his name correctly.

Don't you have the ability to edit the comments section? We could have pretended that never happened.

2 Uh, Bob, I think you meant "...despite his being injred..." I don't think anything happened despite him, becuase it was very much about him. I'm watching you, Bob.
