In a stunning move at the trade deadline, The Good Phight traded long-time author and Associate Blog Lord Taco Pal to Amazin' Avenue for Eric Simon.  

Simon, on the downside of a long, but productive career, was believed to be seeking an opportunity to win a championship before the hamate bone injuries that have plagued him end his blogging career.  TGP is expected to slot him in for analysis and daily links dumps.

On the other end of the deal, Taco Pal is subject to a blog-favorable contract for the next two years, but had expressed a reluctance to negotiate an extension.  He made it known on several occasions that he intended to test the free agent marketplace.  The move will allow Amazin' Avenue to rebuild around his Logic Dome skillset that meshes perfectly with the style of new Mets GM, Sandy Alderson.

"It's win-win," stated Whole Camels at the press conference announcing the move.  "We haven't gotten the production at TGP that we expected from some of our newer Associate Blog Lords.  I'm sure you all remember the RTP fiasco recently -- blowing the score on two consecutive game wraps? We had to address that.  Like, SHUNNED squared.  Hopefully when we get him back from Betty Ford, he'll have his head back in the game.  If not, we expect Eric's veteran clubhouse presence to show the rookies the right way to blog.  He's a professional blogger.  It's a bonus that Eric has a big bat.  Hopefully, we can send Eric out a winner.  Whether he wants to come back next year is something we'll address after the playoffs."

Taco Pal had little to say about the trade. "Yeah, well, it's a business.  I think WC may have been getting a little insecure, you know?  My brain is like, so much bigger than his, and I think he's a little jealous.  It was time to move on, and Amazin' Avenue is a good place for me.  I really hate the Phillies anyway."
