Jepsen for Joyce…Here’s My Number…


Well, another Salt Lake Bees graduate has been traded away to the massive abyss of the MLB. Angels P Kevin Jepsen has been moved to the Tampa Bay Rays in exchange for OF Matt Joyce. Jepsen will reunite with another Bees alum, INF Sean Rodriquez, who was part of the disgustingly terrible trade that brought Scott Kazmir to the red team along with his $25 million baggage.


This post is about Kevin Jepsen and Matt Joyce. I’m not still aching from that Kazmir deal, I promise.

It will be bittersweet to see Kevin go as he was a large part of the Bees relief core before his promotion. And as a machine that breaks down often, we could always count on him to come say hi here in Salt Lake.

On a closing note…. I don’t quite understand the trade as it doesn’t read seem like Joyce has anywhere to play….. Kinda weird right? ….Maybe???? Ahhh, maybe not.


JB Moves…..


Hit machine and On Base Percentage abuser, JB Shuck, has been traded to the Clevland Indians for cash considerations. It seems like only a year ago when he was in serious Rookie of the Year talks……… Oh wait…….


The Halos better have considered mucho dinero from the Tribe for him…

Moves After 19 and Torn Ligaments…


We all knew moves would be made after that 19 inning affair, PLUS reports came out earlier this morning that Angels P Tyler Skaggs was headed for Tommy John surgery……so….

Salt Lake Bees Pitcher’s Caleb Clay and newly acquired Vinnie Pestanto have both been recalled to the Angels.
CJ Cron and P Cam Bedrosian are coming back to Salt Lake.
