New Orleans recieves:
RF Ernest 'Sourface' Conard (33, ML) - $17.8/$17.8/$17.8
SP Alfredo Pinto (33, ML) - $3.9/$3.9/$3.9

Since Then:
Conard had an '08 All-Star season for New Orleans batting .313 with 38 homeruns and 110 RBIs in 145 games. He won the PEBA Championship with New Orleans in '08. His '09 season ended prematurely (7 games played) with a torn calf muscle (4/12/09).
Pinto went 13-10 with a 4.86 ERA in 32 games with New Orleans in '08. He was traded to San Antonio in the offseason (11/10/08) who subsequently traded him to West Virginia (12/17/08).

Rodríguez batted .240 with 9 homers and 68 RBIs in 136 games with Fargo in '08. He remains with Fargo in '09 and has put up similar numbers to the '08 season.
Lewis played so so for Fargo in '08. He batted .205 with 14 homeruns and 83 RBIs in 153 games. He was traded to Tempe in '09 (7/19/09).
Fowler hit .272 with 29 RBIs in a bench role for Fargo in '08. He batted leadoff for Fargo in '09 and has played decently.
López minor league numbers has dramatically declined since joining Fargo's farm system. At age 26, it is unsure if López will be able to regain his potential.
Flores has played poorly since joining Fargo's farm system. He batted .203 for Fargo's AA affiliate in '08 and has not played much better in '09.
Ellis went 1-2 with 5.93 in 38 games with Fargo in '08. He has since been demoted to Fargo's AA affiliate in '09 and has pitched poorly.
