    Williams Traded to Mets for Minor Leaguer

    Robert Manuel, a right-hander in low A ball. That's all I know, and I don't know if that's even accurate. Have at it.

    This calls to mind the Yankees fan's quote about the trade of Womack. Is this guy still alive? Not that that would be a deal breaker or anything....

    Exactly... take his salary and that's good enough for me.

    I know he's old for rookie ball, but 49 K and 4 BB is promising. Heck, getting anything of value is promising.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    He wasn't drafted last year and signed as a FA...does he have to wait to be traded (PTBNL route) or can he report straight to the team he is traded to.

    You're absolutely right, NJ Reds. Here's his line for 2005 with the Brooklyn Cyclones:


    2 games, 5 IP, 5 hits, 5 KO, 0 BB, 1 earned run surrendered (a home run), 1 hold, 1.00 WHIP, 1.80 ERA.

    That was last year. The Cyclones don't start until late June.

    Trading Williams is addition by subtraction so what you get back isn't really important.

    Hearing that we might be able to deal Williams makes me think that Dan O'Brien was even more of a loser for not being able to get ANYTHING when we DFA'd D'Angelo last year.

    Hes only walked 4 batters in 61.2 innings in the minors.

    Does anyone know what pitches he throws or how hard he throws?
    Ive been looking on yahoo but havent found anything like that about him.

    Re: I'm hearing Williams to the Mets for ...

    Crap, I used to go to Cyclones games a lot, I wonder if I've seen him pitch. I will check my scorecards.

    I would take pretty much any pitcher under the age of 35 for Williams. and Manuel's age is listed as 0, so that's encouraging.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.
