Apparently the Marlins balked when the Rockies asked that Guillermo Mota be included in the Brian Fuentes no-deal according to the Miami Herald.
Check this out, you can get a Royals series preview at three Rockies blogs, TGTBATB, TtR, and UItR. Maybe I'm missing out on this series preview thing, is there like a prize involved? Anyhoo, surprisingly enough no preview anywhere seems to mention how good these two teams are. I mean not White Sox good (the teams are a combined 0-12 against the Southsiders) but I certainly think they could have given the Saint Louis Maroons a run for superiority of the 1884 Union Association.
