I can understand Rockies' fans being angry, given their track record, but they really did pretty well in this deal. Taveras plays Gold Glove caliber defense and he can flat out fly. The Rocks have needed a guy like this in center since Pierre was here. On the negative side, he's still developing offensively and Boras is his agent.
Hirsh is Houston's best pitching prospect in years and he should make a solid impact in 2008 and beyond. Bucholz is a solid prospect in his own right and he had some promising moments with the big club last year.
