Steve Trachsel wouldn't help us much at all if any.

sure he was 15 and 8 last year but that was with a 4.97 era

put him in GABP and that is going to go down to maybe 10 or fewer wins if he's lucky.

and since nl central will be murders rowe this year he would have a good 5.50+ era.

Honestly call me crazy, but I think Milton can pitch as good as Trachsel if he was in the nl central.

Trachsel better stay in NY if he knows whats good for him.

Trachsel had good D behind him and had good run suppourt.

Oddly enough, Trachsel got creamed at Shea Stadium (5.52 ERA vs. 4.34 on the road)

Maybe a change of scenery might help him out.

He's not that good or anything, but he beats the crap out of some of the Reds alternatives. Especially if signed to a 1 year contract.

Trachsel needs to pitch in a park where he can keep the ball in the yard.

I'm thinking Yosemite.

he really doesn't give up that many dingers compared to a lot of other guys. he gace up over 1/2 his HR's last year at home.

Yeah, but the perception is that when Trachsel hits bats, balls fly far.

I think that might have been the thread where Marty also mentioned that the Reds were interested in Hermanson as well.

"Danger! Danger! Danger, Will Robinson", said The Robot

Steve Trachsel is to be avoided. His numbers point to a 36 year old pitcher heading on the downward side of his career.

2003 season he gave up 8.97 Hits/9 with 2.86 BB/9 and 4.88 K/9.
2004 season he gave up 9.02 Hits/9 with 3.69 BB/9 and 5.20 K/9.
2005 season he only pitched 37 innings due to herniated disk surgery.
2006 season he gave up 10.11 hits/9 with 4.26 BB/9 and 4.32 K/9.

His career average for those numbers are:
14 ML seasons with 9.21 Hits/9 with 3.28 BB/9 and 5.94 K/9.

Let some other sucker team overpay for diminishing returns on that kind of investment.

I believe the 3 in question if my memory serves me are the Mets, Nats and Stros, from what I read yesterday on ESPNI.

From Mlbtraderumors.com:

Nats Not Interested In Trachsel
Apparently Steve Trachsel has priced himself out of the Nationals' range ($3 million is too much I guess). Washington is not one of the three teams in the running for him, according to Bill Ladson.

A few days ago, Ken Rosenthal reported that the Astros were talking to Trax but that Tim Purpura did not consider it hot and heavy. The Twins are out now too. So who are these two other teams?

Trachsel was born in Oxnard, CA, so maybe he'd like to play on the west coast. The Dodgers and Angels would be closest to his hometown, but those teams have fully booked rotations. The Padres, Giants, and A's are further away. I wouldn't put it past the Giants to sign Trachsel to use instead of Jonathan Sanchez. Or maybe Trachsel could help as the veteran presence in Tampa Bay's rotation? Perhaps some Kyle Davies insurance for the Braves?

Honestly, I have no idea who the other teams would

Maybe at one time there was some interest on the Reds part but no longer looks like he might want to go out west.

Yes your right but not until the the third inning he was left out. 2 more innings after a two hour rain delay is pretty nice.

The Mets jerked Trachsel around a lot over the last couple years. Randolph and Peterson were not enamored with him at all. I think Trachsel's attitude had something to do with the problems as well.

Steve Trachsel would be a perfect Giant. He's old enough.
