No one was surprised that Kevin Slowey was traded. Neither was the destination unexpected as the Colorado Rockies had shown interest in July.
What has been disappointing has been the near character assassination of Slowey by members of the Twin Cities media. Fortunately there are some more reasonable ones.
I wish Slowey well, although like many others I wonder how he will fair as a fly ball pitcher in Denver. Out of curiosity if nothing else, he will be worth following in 2012.
Update: Nick Nelson also has a decent post on the Slowey trade.
