MLB.com announced the trade but won't say where until details are sorted. The chips are begining to fall. We'll see what the Marte deal means for Sherrill.

Also, interesting in that I don't think i've ever seen half of a trade announced.

They were traded together to the NYY.

Go to the MLB forum. It is listed in there. Tabata was one the players going back to Pittsburgh.

Here's the blurb from RotoWorld.

The Pirates will get Jose Tabata, Ross Ohlendorf and two other prospects from the Yankees for Xavier Nady and Damaso Marte, SI.com's Jon Heyman reports.

Pittsburgh came down off its initial price tag an awful long way then. Tabata still has very exciting potential and is incredibly young, but his wrist problem are scary and he's looking like a headcase. Ohlendorf has never been a good bet to develop into anything more than a sixth- and seventh-inning guy. Pitcher Phil Coke is also believed to be in the deal, and he's a true long shot to help.

I'd say it definitely raises Sherrill's value. Thins the herd.
