Saw on cbssportsline that the mets and brewers are looking at trying to acquire him. Based on the remainder of his salary and his dismal performance I know we aint gonna get a whole lot in return. So if I'm Krivsky here's my offer:
1)reds trade Dave Williams to the Mets for 28yr old reliever Heath Bell who's in AAA at the moment. Williams moves into the 5th spot in the Mets rotation and Bell takes the spot of Rick White.
2) Reds trade Williams to the Brewers for 25yr old RHP Chris Demaria who has bounced back and forth between AAA and the Brewers. Demaria then joins our AAA staff and maybe gets a shot at middle relief or 5th starter in Sept.
IMHO I would rather have Bell from the Mets, the Mets seem to not have high regards for him and are in desperate need of a starter, and he is relatively cheap for them, and Bell would give us a good 6-7th inning guy to team up with Coffey and allow us to cut bait on Rick White. Thoughts?
