That and the fact that Ludwick is a free agent after the season leads me to believe that it might not be the best deal unless they could lock Ludwick up after 2011.
to me it's quite easy to see why SD would do this move. They dump salary and avoid getting nothing when he would leave via FA and they get a very good young serviceable OF in return. It's Cincy that would be making the dumb move, but since Dusty refuses to recognize Heisey as anything more then the 25th man on the roster, by adding Ryan for the rest of the season it would 'MAYBE' add someone who can hit say 5th and give us some more run production since Gomes ain't gonna do that.
