Fairly big trade
North Shore: Traded OF Andrew Wishy and RHP Kevin Rival to Worcester to complete an earlier trade between the two clubs.
Well, now we know how we were able to get Cordova for "nothing" late in the season. I guess ol' Rich Gedman knows what he's doing after all. Wishy was a good player, but he had his ups and downs.. we can replace him. I think we'll really miss Rival's arm in the 'pen. He was part of a lethal bullpen. Pitching was certainly never the Spirit's problem last year.
It kind of looks crappy when you think of it as just sort of losing two players who were good, but if you think about it in the context of adding Cordova, it's not necessarily a bad deal. The Spirit will be strong up the middle next year.
