— A Timely Look at Transactions as They Happen
Saturday, June 11, 2005
Nats - Busy Day for Jimbo
Washington Nationals - Claimed P Jacob Sequea and P Ryan Drese off waivers; acquired 2B Junior Spivey from the Milwaukee Brewers for P Tomo Ohka; informed OF Jeffrey Hammonds of his retirement since he didn’t quite get the message.
A lot of moves here. The big one is Spivey for Ohka, of course, which tells me that they’re still very worried about Vidro’s ankle. Or that they’re super paranoid and can’t last three weeks with Jamey Carroll at 2nd. Or maybe a little from column A and a little from column B! Spivey will most likely be benched or traded once Vidro is healthy - there’s no chance that Spivey ever replaces Castilla as Castilla has 2 good weeks this year to Cristian Guzman’s 0 and Frank Robinson was aghast a couple of days ago hat people didn’t appreciate the awesomeness of Guzman this year.
For the Brewers, the benefits are obvious. They get to send Obermuller, who would be very fortunate to keep that ERA under 5, to mopup duty and add Ohka to the rotation. They lose Spivey, but they needed to anyway to get Weeks in there. Now, it’s only a minor upgrade, but I think Ohka will beat the projection now that he’s not actively trying to kill the manager.
Luckily, Bowden was kind enough to supply Baseball Think Factory with a page from the notepad he used while making today’s transactions.
