Bill Short Return

I sent out a small number of requests last week and received the first one back today.

Bill Short signed his 1960 and 1961 Topps in one week.  Mr. Short is a great signer through the mail. I'm not sure why I haven't sent to him sooner.

The trade deadline has passed today.  Morneau is still with the Twins.  I'm happy about that, despite his past injuries and lack of home runs this year.  I don't think we'd have gotten much in return, and I think he's got a lot of upside potential.

The Twins did trade Drew Butera to the Dodgers.  I think they got a Gatorade cooler or something in return.  Butera didn't hit much, but I thought he was the best defensive catcher we have.  Hopefully he'll get to play more games in the majors with the Dodgers.
