The Grotto Gottos trades Clarence Hartman to the Vancouver Golden Otters for Edwin Corey and Glen Bush. Helena had been rather disgusted with Clarence's production for sometime. They couldn't figure out what the problem was for a long time, even sending him to AAA last year trying to fix the problem. After 38 games the numbers were the same as previous seasons. Management decided they just didn't have the resources to put him in a productive situation any longer and found a suitor in the Golden Otters. Management thinks Vancouver could be a very good fit for Clarence and hopes he does well there. The Grotto Gottos likes the looks of Edwin Corey as a 3B/COF needing a little time to develop. Also obtained in the deal was pitcher Glen Bush, the Kitties are hopeful he can become a contributor at the ML level as early as next year.
