Aurora Borealis and Kentucky Thoroughbreds

April 8th, 2007

Kentucky receives:
SP Alfredo Pinto (32, ML) - $3.9/$3.9/$3.9/$3.9
LF Ron Dawson (24, ML) - $0.4/$0.4/arbitration/arbitration/arbitration
CL Alfonso Hernandez (36, CL) - $1.6/$1.6
Aurora's 2nd round draft pick 2007 (RF Edward Baxter -23rd pick)

Aurora receives:
1B Kuemon Kiyomizu (23, ML) - $4.5/$4.5/$4.5/arbitration/arbitration/arbitration
MR Adrian Suarez (33, ML) - $2.5/$2.5

Since Then:
Kiyomizu won the 2007 SL Wunderkind award and has become a superstar.
Suarez had two good years for Aurora.

Pinto became one of the worst regular starters in PEBA and was traded to Fargo in May.
Dawson is the starting LF for Kentucky, although his play is well below average.
Hernandez was traded to Crystal Lake in June after a poor start to the season.
Baxter's career was ruined by a back injury suffered in his first month after being drafted.

A defining moment in both franchise's histories. - Coal Sox
