Rockies - Acquired Day
Colorado Rockies - Acquired P Zach Day and OF J.J. Davis from the Washington Nationals for OF Preston Wilson; signed P Mike Stanton.
As Josh Heit suggested, Nick Johnson must really be injured badly to make the Nationals acquire Preston Wilson. Wilson hasn’t even had a good Coorsflated season in a couple of years, let alone put up numbers that would make any team want him unless it was on a dare or something. I’m not at all sure that J.J. Davis isn’t a better player than Preston Wilson, let alone a guy like Val Pascucci who the Nats dropped for free.
Day’s been terrible this year, but he does have a history of being a serviceable pitcher, something that most teams could use. Is he a Coors pitcher? I don’t know - there are only 2 real Coors pitchers in history, Steve Reed and a mythical pitcher that strikes out 27 batters per 9 innings without using any pitches that require movement. This is great fortune for J.J. Davis - he could hack his way into perceived stardom, much like Wilson did 2 years ago.
Apparently, nobody wanted to even give up 2 bad pitchers for Stanton as the Padres did for Quantrill. Stanton will be the #2 lefty and on a short leash since the Nats didn’t give up anything for him.
