Padres - Acquired Quantrill

San Diego Padres - Acquired P Paul Quantrill from the New York Yankees for P Tim Redding and P Darrell May.

Kind of an odd trade - the Padres are apparently sending money along.  The Yankees get new bad relievers to take the place of the old bad relievers and the Padres get to compress their bad relievers when they could have simply DFAed one or the other.  The Padres are likely to bring up Astacio already with both May and Redding gone.  I’m still not sure what either team actually “gets” out of this trade.

Who trades for a pitcher with an ERA over 9.00? If these guys can't get it done in San Diego, it's hard to see Yankee Stadium being the cure for their problems.

But UCCF... you have to believe in the power of Mel!

I do believe in the power of Mel. Assuming you mean Mel Sharples. His chili was the best in Phoenix!

Since when did Repoz learn to channel through others?

Maybe he can get Darren to post "Clemens sucks!" over and over again just for laughs.

Best Regards

If Quantrill get put any semblance of decent pitching in the hitter's wasteland of Petco, then this is a good deal for S.D.
Redding's been awful though that may be an insult to things that are awful. May had the one good outing at the Metrodome, but he's a lefty so he'll kick around in MLB.

I have trouble seeing why NYY would take on these two and they certainly aren't strapped for cash.

Redding was born in 1978 in Rochester, NY.

May was born in 1972 in San Bernardino, CA.

Quantrill was born in 1968, in some foreign country.

I don't have current salary information, but it seems to me that in a battle of ineffective relievers, you take the younger and cheaper ones.

If Redding turns out to be special (he had an ERA+ of 120 in 176 innings in Houston in 2003), then it's a win for the Yankees. If he's cannon fodder, the release is cheaper.

May was a good starter for KC, also in 2003. His ERA+ was 135 and he threw 210 innings.

I'd rather have those two than a toasted Q. But that's just me.

Wait, a salary dump to the Yankees? Is that a first?

Yeah, people respect his ability to hold a job, despite no evidence that he knows what he's doing.

I'll trade you a 1987 Oldsmobile with a blown transmission for a used garden hose.

And I realize you are trying to run the hot topics.

You've gotta wake up pretty early in the morning to get one over on ol' rLr. Or you have to stay up pretty damn late at night.

Hijack (of a dead thread?)...

The Braves have placed Brian Jordan on the 15-day DL with Bad Player Disease, and have called up Jeff Francoeur to take his place.
