Greene headed to STL not BAL
Reported on ESPN that Greene has been traded to STL. Doesn't say for who but a right handed bullpen arm. Certainly looks like a salary dump to me. Wonder why the O's didn't pull the trigger.

In his defense, the thread on the main page is "Greene to Baltimore?", this thread is "Green to St Louis, not Baltimore"... so it's not really the same thread, but we would likely be having the same discussion in this thread as we would the other one.

I would like to point out that unless you go into the Greene to Baltimore thread, you would not be aware that he has been traded. I found out thanks to this thread. Nothing wrong at all with starting a new thread.
I am not surprised by this move, and it will be interesting to see how he responds away from Petco and with a new team.

You could probably merge that other thread with this one.

Greene would not have been a very good move for us.
He would have been an expensive one-year rental. We could have tried to re-sign him, but I think we either need a cheap defensive stop-gap (Izturis) or try to find someone young that can be groomed.
Is there anyone that might be available through Rule 5?

Barring something unforseen, doesn't this make Cesar Izturis pretty much our opening day short stop?

Who wants to read through 10 pages of stuff about the possible SS for the O's in 2009 and find out on page 12 that Greene actually got traded to STL.
I figure just start a new one to discuss how Greene got away. Wonder what happen? Any insider info? Sounded like a true salary dump to me. Besides starting pitching, SS is the biggest hole we have to fill. Would have been nice to see the numbers Greene would have put up in a stadium like Camden Yards.

Instead of saying anything to a new guy why not say something to those that have to start a Tex thread? There are a lot of those.
