Bartlett trade finally finished

It's been nine days since the Padres and Rays reached agreement on a deal that would send shortstop Jason Bartlett to San Diego, but the agreement never became official, with reports of a holdup possibly involving the physical exam of one of the players going to the Rays.

Well, whatever it was has been worked out, and the deal is done. It's a bit different that the originally reported trade, which would have sent Bartlett to the Padres for pitchers Adam Russell and Cesar Ramos. All that is still true, but now the Rays are adding a player to be named later and the Padres are adding two more players: Double-A right-hander Brandon Gomes and Class A middle infielder Cole Figueroa.
