More Trades and a Win.

Some news:

(last updated: 11:30 PM EDT: 7/28/06)

--Breaking News: The Atlanta Braves have acquired RP Danys Baez and 3B Willy Aybar for 3B Wilson Betemit. Crosstown Rivals has confirmed this from the Dodger broadcast on XM Satellite Radio. The deal is close to official.
(EDIT: MLB.com has the story.)

--Nice win, boys. Nice work, Pedro.

--David Bell is a Brewer.

--Mike Stanton is a Giant.

--Star Cuban 2B/3B Yuliesky Gourriel (as seen in the WBC) has defected to Colombia. Scouts compare him to Alfonso Soriano and many teams are expected to try and sign him. The Yankees are obviously in the hunt and one can assume the Mets are going to be involved as they own two of the eight Cubans in the bigs (Marrero/Duque).

--The Astros are aggressively after both Alfonso Soriano and Miguel Tejada, with the Rangers and Angels darkhorses to land the All-Star shortstop.

--Kip Wells tossed seven scoreless innings tonight, which will most likely be followed by a trade in the coming days. In that game, Pirates closer Mike Gonzalez also recorded his seventeenth save. He has yet to blow one.

--I'll be back with some more trade news tomorrow morning.
