Jeffrey, today must be your best day of the 2009 USML campaign (other than
yesterday, when you published your minor leaguers' rankings by John Sickels,
and good grief, if you're gonna cite this guy as vaildation for all your
caterwaulings at the very least spell his name right):

TORONTO -- The Baltimore
Orioles<http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/clubhouse?team=bal>have traded
catcher Gregg
Zaun <http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/players/profile?playerId=3267> to the Tampa
Bay Rays <http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/clubhouse?team=tam>, clearing the
way for rookie Matt
become Baltimore's main backstop.

The Orioles received cash or a player to be named later. They also called up
Chad Moeller <http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/players/profile?playerId=4424>from
Triple-A Norfolk on Friday to take Zaun's place on the roster.

The switch-hitting Zaun batted .244 with four homers and 13 RBIs in 56
games. The 15-year veteran has also played for Colorado, Florida, Houston,
Kansas City, Texas and Toronto, after beginning his career with the Orioles
in 1995.

Wieters, the Orioles' first-round pick in 2007, is hitting .268 with three
homers and 14 RBIs in 46 games since being called up May 29.

Moeller hit .200 with one homer and two RBIs in 15 games with the Orioles
earlier this season.
