The Affeldt Trade

Anybody noticing what Jeremy Affeldt is doing over in Colorado this season? He's got a 2.90 ERA with a 1.26 WHIP in 48 appearances. And opponents are hitting just .215 against him.

It's still way too early to say that we got the short end of the stick regarding the trade that sent Affeldt and Denny Bautista to the Rockies for Ryan Shealy and Scott Dohmann, but Dohmann was terrible for the Royals last season and ended up being designated for assignment. He's getting knocked around right now in Tampa Bay. Ryan Shealy can't stay healthy, and even when he does, he hasn't been impressive. He's hitting just .221 this season in 52 games. Denny Bautista has been even worse than Scott Dohmann was since the trade. He has a 19.06 ERA in seven games with the Rockies this season.

Right now, the only player involved in the trade who is doing anything at the major league level is Jeremy Affeldt.
