Sean McAdam confirms reports of the trade on Felger & Mazz
So -- the only thing percolating for the Red Sox as they trade for a lefty specialist out of the bullpen and less. You've heard something else out well no I am but I you -- I'd have confirm that the deal was done. And when I tried to confirm the names was told players plural have not been told yet so that would lend credence to. Reports out of Arizona Jack Magruder I think was the first to Arizona Republic. Was the first to say that it would be. Matt Albers and said -- so looks I know the deal has been agreed upon Evan told the players but it certainly makes sense. That that is impacted our -- are getting which. Frankly you know not that either of those guys are difference makers I think of a lot to give up for a lefty specialist I mean especially with -- -- perhaps done for the year. Albers. Along with the Padilla is the you know it was a righty setup guy that was fairly. Serviceable here not that the sudden -- loss is significant because they have plenty of outfielders but. To me given up even Albert straight up for Breslow is is a reminder Powell overvalued sometimes lefty relievers to get. -- what's the angle here. I I don't think they're given up much at all I mean I don't think much of Alberts and show you know he'd done more this year than I think anyone could have expected but you know. Ultimately what's Matt Albers you're talking about them guys on the middle schools after they got from the Baltimore Orioles you know it it is. I don't think there's any major loss there while I -- I'm not suggesting that this you know moves them back I just think it's a lot to give up. For a guy who's probably gonna end up pitching about ten innings over the final two months. One batter at -- time lefty reliever okay well they say and they sure seem interested in getting that lefty for the bullpen which has got to mean -- them from Morales which has to mean something for a the guys currently or in the rotation absolutely mind maybe that means do -- but there's obviously you know more to that than just the lefty coming here.
