A’s - Acquired Kennedy
Oakland A’s - Acquired P Joe Kennedy and P Jay Witasick from the Colorado Rockies for OF Eric Byrnes and SS Omar Quintanilla
Damn move has to be announced after I close the Transaction Oracle Supercomputer.
Nice set of moves by the A’s now that they’ve found a good home for Byrnes. They’ve essentially turned an injury risk reliever who was now probably 4th on their rightly bullpen depth chart and Quintanilla for Joe Kennedy and a replacement reliever.
Quintanilla is still an interesting project. Being of a more powerful figure than the typical shortstop prospect with a Spanishy-sounding last name, the A’s were really hoping he’d turn on the power this season for the Rockhounds (and a great hitter’s park). He’s been good, but not great and he does have upside, so not a bad pickup for the Rockies.
Kennedy has no star potential, but provides nice insurance for the rotation. The ERA is ugly, but he did pitch very well for the Rockies in ‘04. After all, does anyone like Ryan Glynn being the insurance policy? Except maybe Ryan Glynn? Byrnes likes Oakland a lot, but he can console himself with the fact that Coors is better than the lottery for B+ outfielders.
