Robinson heads for Big Apple

GM jway11 made a big splash in his triumphant return to the franchise formerly known as the Detroit Bulldogs when he landed Florida Breeze 1B Matty Robinson in a three player trade completed earlier today. The 25-year-old Robinson, who hit .309 with 47 homeruns and 112 RBI with a .424 OBP in 139 games last season, heads to New York in exchange for pitching prospect Larry Lawson and OF/1B Philip Ledesma.

The 23-year-old Lawson, one of the prized pitching prospects in Camp and third overall pick of the season 3 draft, was 14-3 with a 2.80 ERA in 21 starts for AAA Cleveland last season. Ledesma hit .279 with 30 homeruns and 107 RBI in 154 games for Cleveland at the ML level last season.
