David Riske

The Sox traded Javier Lopez to the Red Sox for David Riske. In eight appearances Riske is 0-1 with a 3.72 ERA. He's relatively young; he's 29 years old. Overall I like this trade. Riske has been pretty solid throughout his career, although his back has been balky at times. I know that Lopez was dominant in AAA, but he is a lefty and we already have two in the 'pen plus some others at AAA. My only regret is that we didn't get to see Lopez in action this season.

Don't laugh, but I don't trust this guy cuz he ruined a fantasy team of mine a few years back. I think he was closing for Cleveland and did it for probably half a season, until they demoted him. Thankfully we have a closer, but if he's anything like he was on my fantasy team we'll wish Damaso was never traded.

It's probably better Javy didn't surface in the bigs -- doing so well in AAA probably boosted his trade value. Kenny picked him up for nothing, yet got something for him in return.
