    Story #1 - Pena goes to the Royals

    Story #2 - Astros get Pedro Borbon from the Blue Jays for a player to be named later...

    I haven't found a link for the trade yet...but I did hear Hunsicker announce the deal...so it's official.

    Thoughts?

    1- Good Luck Tony-I wish you well. He'll do a good job.

    2-The Hun does it again. We have been crying for a lefty out of the pen besides Billy and we just got it.

    Did it again is right! This guy is exactly what the bullpen needs -- a lefty who has proven he can get batters out throughout his career. The Blue Jays decided they were paying too much for a situational lefty, and the Hun took advantage. Plus, his home is in Houston, so he'll be excited to pitch here.

    One of those nice little moves Hunsicker makes that we later realize was huge.
