Another Swap by the Alley Cats

The Atkins Alley Cats announced last night that they had completed yet another trade, this time sending pitcher John Patterson to the Arkansas Alley Cats for outfielder Jay Gibbons.

“We hated to move Patterson,” said Cats owner Charles Rector from his spring training location.  “He’s been looking good so far in workouts.  But we wanted to make room for another pitcher, and Patterson was the odd man out.”

The Cats signed pitcher David Bush to take Patterson’s slot.

“Wow, I’m just flattered that such a quality organization took an interest in me,” said Bush.  “For them to go to the effort of clearing room for me, well, that just speaks volumes.”

The Cardinals were also considering this a positive move.

“While we weren’t in the market for it, it never hurts to stockpile some pitching,” said owner Daniel Shoptaw.  “I mean, you look at what happened to [Clarksville Cubs pitcher] Kris Benson today–out for the season.  If you stockpile some arms, it helps you deal with those type of major issues.  It doesn’t fix them, but it helps you weather the storm.”
