Today the Nukes traded Tadihito Iguchi to the Riptorns for Justin Huber.
“Iguchi adds stability to the Torns’ middle infield situation,” explained Rips CEO Brad Jansen. “And I don’t mind spending $19 for a solid and stable veteran. Here’s fair notice to all you fence sitters and hair splitters: you all had your shot at Justin Huber. If you want to hit a bullseye once in awhile, you need to pick up the friggin’ gun and *pull the trigger*. I’ve made it clear time and time again: I want production, not promise. I suppose I should be happy when men of scholarship and vision laud all the great young talent on my team. So what. I would trade them all now if a deal or two or three could put me in a position in 2007 to even think about giving chase to Hoosier Daddies or even the Bombers for that matter.
“You all saw how much I wheel and deal, and you know I didn’t finish in 8th place by sitting on my arse all season. So, good luck to the Nukes and on to the next Deal.”
