Cats Break Out of Comfort Zone, Deal With Armada

A day after dealing with his most familiar trading partner, Charles Rector and the Atkins Alley Cats mixed it up a little, dealing outfielder Chone Figgins and Trevor Hoffman for Mark Redman of the Edwardsville Armada.

“Mix it up a little, that’s my motto,” said Rector about the deal. “Redman should be a strong part of our winning rotation. Hated to see those guys go, but them’s the breaks.”

The Armada seem to be stocking up on closers, having previously dealt for Chad Cordero earlier in the week.

“Having a strong presence at the end of games is going to be big for us,” said Armada owner David Reed. “We think this way we can win some close games late and maybe more than our share of one-run ballgames.”

Late Edit: After consultation with the rules, the commissioner was forced to deem the above trade illegal.  However, the teams modified the deal, with the Armada sending cash with Redman for Hoffman and Raul Ibanez.
