Sabean Swoops In

Mike won't admit it, but his alias when he's in the French Quarter is Clay Bertrand.

Mike Fontenot has been traded by the Cubs to the Giants for minor leaguer Evan Crawford.

There's really no reason to criticize this deal. It's the same as the other trades that Sabean made at the trade deadline. Injuries occurred, creating a hole, so Sabean filled it with a thoroughly unspectacular player. They gave up a total non prospect, so it doesn't really bother me that Fontenot's WAR this year is below zero. He's just a replacement. He'll do nothing, but he also won't do much worse than our other middle infielders. Oh, and he's from Louisiana and was on the LSU championship team in 2000, so I love that.
