Jason Lane Traded to the Padres. Let's Rock.

With apologies to The Mamas & The Papas.

“Stepped his way on towards first base Well, Milton got down with the ump and played head case You know Bud Black liked him calm – and now Milton’s gone away. California dreamin’, Lane’s gone to the Padres.’”

Hey, Ed, I’m sorry. I take it back. Maybe you do know what you’re doing. That other guy would have never able to get rid of Jason Lane, yet you found a sucker to take him with less than a week left in the season.

Even better, you got the same sucker to take Lane that took Morgan Ensberg. Now, I note that the trade is for either a player to be named later or for cash considerations, but as long as Morgan Ensberg ain’t that player to be named later, then I’m fine with this deal.

This is a positive deal.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

And about those terrible things I said last week, I’m sorry. Really. -- John Royal
