Giants - Acquired Hawkins
San Francisco Giants - Acquired P LaTroy Hawkins from the Chicago Cubs for P Jerome Williams and P David Aardsma.
The fans had already turned against LaTroy to the point at which getting rid of him created less of a headache for the Cubs. This season’s looking more and more over after every game, so it makes sense to get rid of Hawkins if you can get something for him. And the Cubs did. Williams still is only 23 and has shown a good deal of promise in his short major league career (though less so recently) but who does have question marks of elbow health and physical condition. The latter I think is overstated; C.C. Sabathia could eat Jerome Williams for breakfast. History’s #1 Player, David Aardsma will also help the bullpen eventually.
The Giants, of course, get LaTroy Hawkins. Tyler Walker is currently the closer, but that will likely change in the long run because of the fact that Walker just isn’t very good. I think Hawkins will eventually get the temporary closer job and will actually do a decent job of it.
Also, let me know what you think about these projection boxes. Keep them? Dump them? Add something? Trim something?
