LA Strengthens up their OF to put pressure on the Zotti League leading Sternwheelers


LA and Cleveland (Covington) have just announced a big trade to help both teams in the near future. Heading to Los Angeles is the reigning player of the month LF George Aguinaldo, CF Samuel Santos who is enjoying arguably his best season yet, and SP Andrew Weimer. GM Michael Weintraub was excited about the additions. "My OF was really falling apart with some under performers and now with the addition Aguinaldo who started the season in River City and Santos, Nate [Wooley] and the Sternwheelers don't stand a chance."

In return the Covington 'Cleveland' Steamers have added LA's 1st round draft pick in 2011 SP Cesar Almendarez , CF prospect Monte Goss, and 2B prospect Lorenzo Juhasz. In addition, the Steamers are going to get $2M in cash. Cleveland GM Jeremy Goldman was overheard complaining before this trade that the names on his team were way to easy to pronounce. After the trade he said, "now with a Juhasz, Almendarez and Goss no one will be pronouncing our player's names correctly. They sound more like ball players than Moore, Sanders, Mitchell and John that are in our system already."

Will this trade put LA over the top in Zotti League...Is front runner River Cities worried more than they were before? What moves will happen next? The rest of the season will tell...
