The M's traded Wilson Valdez to the Padres for RHP Michael Bumstead and RHP R.D. Spiehs. They're both AAA relievers but, more importantly, they are 2 human beings. This may be Bavasi's shining moment. He got two people for Valdez.
Also...the Rangers designated Ryan Drese for assignment. He was their Opening Day starter. I'd at least take him over Sele.
