Breaking News: Twins trade for Boone
I'll have a lot more on this tomorrow I'm sure, but for now this will have to do: According to the Seattle Times, the Twins have traded a Player To Be Named Later to the Mariners for Bret Boone. As of 2:45 p.m. I haven't seen this confirmed anywhere locally, but the Seattle Times story looks legit.
Here's hoping the PTBNL is no one of note and the Mariners are picking up the majority of Boone's salary. Assuming both of those things, it's not a horrible risk to take. I'll remain skeptical about Boone's potential impact though, because he looks done to me.
