Warpigs and Wahoos Trade

The Warpigs traded Lorenzo Cain, Brandon Maurer, and pick 31 to the Wahoos today. In exchange, the Pigs get Raisel Iglesias, pick 56, and both of the Wahoo reserve picks.

These are two teams headed in different directions. The Wahoos, your 2017 NASOMA Champions, add a big bat vs LHP. Cain slashed 371/420/596 against lefties last year, and is a 1 in both CF and RF. Maurer is a backwards RH reliever who won't have much to do on this talented team.

For the Pigs, who are in a major rebuild mode, the key to the deal was the 2 reserve picks. "We wanted to take a couple of kids, maybe. But mostly we wanted to expand our roster, giving us a better chance to return to form in 2018." Iglesias is just a bum who was thrown in for the innings.

There is a highly classified addendum to the deal (because one cannot make a deal with the Wahoos without an addendum). The details are minor (and legal) and will be revealed during the Draft.
