We’ve heard the first rumblings of the 2008 season. The trade winds have picked up already. Hoping to improve on their 5th place finish, the Barracudas sent strikeout artist Scott Kazmir and Pedro Martinez to the Dirty Dogs in return for the DD’s 2008 franchise slot. The move will enable the Coods to protect both John Lackey and Delmon Young. BEMLBlog likes this move for the Dogs.
Also, your 2007 Champion Team Phil Chu zeroed in on the Snowmen’s Derrek Lee ($2.00 salary) and sent Troy Tulowitski (at minimum salary $0.25) in return. BEMLBlog likes this move for the Snowmen given the salary differential.
In other Chu news, they report they are looking into conference facilities for the 16th annual BEML draft on March 22.
Finally, BEMLBlog readers should know they can now purchase the new 337-page hard bound book cataloguing the 2007 season, The Big East Meadow League Blog 2007:
