Slowey Trade

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.

The two best perspectives about Slowey and his falling out with the Twins that I have read come from Phil Mackey of ESPN 1500 radio and Cody Christie, whose blog North Dakota Twins Fan I follow.

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.
