    I missed this Brewer/Met deal

    Adams was a guy I was hoping the Reds might go after. I am not sure why the Brewers never gave him a chance aftet the start of last year. He certainly is a better option than Yan.

    Acquired RHP Mike Adams from the Brewers for RHP Jeremi Gonzalez. [5/26]

    I guess when you have a problem you only belatedly recognize, you don't just address it, you address it with prejudice. I like the decision to get Williams as that extra bit of insurance well enough, although I question the need to give the Reds something beyond cash. Credit Wayne Krivsky for getting something extra out of Omar Minaya. However, to Minaya's credit, he then managed to get something for his fait accompli discard of Gonzalez, picking up a hard-throwing reliever from the Brewers for the definition of a replacement-level starter. Adams has had his problems making the jump to The Show, but qualities like 'big' and 'throws really hard' are worth shopping for, and if all Adams needed was a change of scenery, this could turn into a major steal.

    Yeah, I caught that the other day too. I was thinking that the Brewers, the other team said to be interested in Dave Williams other than the Mets, would have been a good match just to get Mike Adams for him... instead, the Mets traded the guy to them they DFA'd to make room for Williams. Would have been nice to have cut out the middle man and gotten Adams for Williams ourselves....Adams has a real live arm.
