Arthur Rhodes
Arthur Rhodes was traded from the Seattle Mariners to the Florida Marlins on Thursday in exchange for minor league pitcher Gaby Hernandez. Rhodes, who’s composed a 17 year career, is 2-1 on the 2008 season with 26 K’s in 22 IP’s. The more important statistic for the veteran southpaw Rhodes is the .195 BA left handed batters have suffered against Arthur this season.

“We wanted to add some depth to the bullpen, some experience,” Marlins president of baseball operations Larry Beinfest said. “It’s a deal we started talking about last weekend, and it came together this morning.”

Randy Messenger
On Thursday night the San Francisco Giants traded their closer Armando Benitez to his former team the Florida Marlins for Randy Messenger. Benitez was heavily rumored to go to the Marlins during the off-season. His recent meltdown against the Mets on Wednesday night may have been the straw that broke Giants’ general manager Brian Sabean’s back. He balked twice in a save situation, and the Mets would go on to win the game in walk off home run fashion. He wore out his welcome in San Francisco early this year, being booed on a regular basis from Giants fans.
