Doin' It Bloggystyle: The Dollar, Deflation and The Marlins...


Minyanville brings together the best of what they are saying "out there" about the topics we're talking about right here.

Blogs themselves need no introduction, as they get as much publicity as pretty much anything these days, save maybe the latest Britney news. There's an expanding world of excellent financial blogs, covering just about everything, from global economics to swing trading. Minyanville's goal is to bring together the best of what they are saying "out there" about the topics we're talking about right here.

So will they or won't they play Stairway to Heaven in concert next week?

It's All About The Benjamins

Trade Station

  • I love this trade from the Marlins' standpoint. Dontrelle Willis and Miguel Cabrera to the Tigers for like 6 prospects. If any of them become stars, and the Marlins verge on getting good again, they can always flip them back to a team that actually tries to win.
  • But seriously, you get the feeling that a decade from now after the Red Sox, Yankees, Angels and Tigers have combined to occupy 38 of the 40 AL playoff spots and won all 10 World Series, you're going to wonder how Bud Selig somehow papered over competitive balance issues for a few years.
  • Speaking of Yankees, I totally agree with... gasp... this Yankees blog. Trading Phil Hughes for Johan Santana is one thing: Trading him for Danny Haren makes no sense. The only reason Haren may bring back near what Santana will is that he's relatively cheap, which means nada if you're the Yankees.
  • Meanwhile in Mets land, can we go back into a time machine and trade Lastings Milledge at the deadline in 2006 for a quality starter for the playoff run in case 1) Pedro gets hurt 2) El Duque gets hurt and 3) Steve Trachsel doesn't get hurt? Like Baseball Crank says, this Milledge trade gets worse and and worse the more you look at it.
