Manchester Maulers and Canton Longshoremen

July 14th, 2008

Manchester receives:
1B Martin Bido (21, A) - minor league contract

Canton receives:
C Bill Mytton (21, AAA) - minor league contract

Since Then:
Bido had an average '08 season with Manchester's AA affiliate. He has progressed well in '09 at AAA and projects one day to be a serviceable first baseman.

Mytton did not play as well after the trade while playing for Canton's AAA affiliate. A superb defensive catcher, Mytton does not have the offensive talent to become a big league regular. At best, he may grow into a defensive backup catcher but his lack of offense makes him a liability in the batting order.
