Absolutely fantastic news for the Reds and other Central contenders. This guy's numbers are beyond horrible. 69 walks and only 45 strikeouts in 140 2/3 innings. And to think stats like this get you $3.1 million this year with a club option of $4.75 million next year. :eek:

I'm not a Trachsel fan (is anyone besides his mom?), but I can think of teams that are sending out worse #5 starters than that. Or put another way, would you rather see Dumatrait or Trachsel pitching for the Reds on Sat?

As for the $3.1MM, the season is almost over anyway so what remains is chump change for the Cubs.

I just find it hard to believe that a guy who has 24 more walks than strikeouts is still making a good living in baseball. Talk about walking a fine line, this guy has one foot off the line.

Maybe St. Louis will go after Jimmy Haynes.

Trachsel was born in Oct.,1970. Appears to be a "Past-Prime Pitcher". If I'm the Cubbies it's probably worth giving Trachsel a shot in the pen starting off and a spot start if he proves he still has something left in his arm. Not a bad move and one that could reap rewards for Chicago.
