Back to Black

In a major deal completed just before the trade deadline, the Atlanta Bandits re-acquire Gregg Black.

Atlanta Bandits and New Orleans Voodoo

Atlanta gets: OF Gregg Black
New Orleans gets: IF/OF Carlton MacDougal, CF Manuel Trinidad

Analysis: Black helped lead the Bandits to a World Series title last season, and the Atlanta front office is hoping he can do it again. He's having a down year as far as run production, but he's still hitting and getting on base; in a deep lineup he can still be a force. In return, New Orleans gets MacDougal, a 32-year-old veteran who has been a colossal disappointment after signing a 5-year contract to stay with Atlanta in the offseason. Trinidad may or may not hit enough to be a force in this league- if he can't, he's a speedy, defensive center fielder. He'll have a place on a roster.
