    And more than likely a great addition to Dr.Kremchek's stable as well.

    Williamson was traded to San Diego for minor league pitching prospects Fabian Jimenez Angulo and Joel Santo, the Cubs' official web site reports.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    Two A-ballers, huh?

    Gosh, that market for middle relievers is really set high!

    Yea, middle relievers with a 10.12ERA over the last 10 games and 7.71 over the last month. He's given up 14hits in 8 innings pitched over his last 10 games.

    That's real quality stuff.

    Yes. I predicted a couple days ago that there would be at least one more reliever traded for little return.. well, here it is. Williamson isn't exactly a sure thing, but it's not like Majewski is "lights out" either.

    I think this trade is shoring up the bullpen for when they trade Linebrink to the Sox for Lowell. That's a great get for the the Sox. I really wish Linebrink was a Red.

    Almost as good as Majewski, huh?

    While he hasn't really done too hot since he's been here, he certinally didn't have a 7 ERA over his last month of pitching with his ERA over the last 10 games climing to 10+ at the time of the trade.

    Majewski cost more talent than dollars. Dollars are easier to come by.

    The Reds need a starter more than a reliever and that was true before the Nats deal.

    Sometimes wins are the only thing that brings dollars, and sometimes that includes the illusion of trying, got to sell tickets while the Bengals try and push you off the front of the sports page.

    They needed both, the team was weighed down by over 30 relievers with no stuff and tweener youths with no stuff.

    Sometimes you have to trade some meat for some mustard and bread if you want to eat a sandwich.

    Tyler Pelland, Brad Salmon, Phil Dumatrait, Calvin Medlock, Tom Shearn, Jonathan Coutlangus and David Shafer all say hi.

    Sometimes there's some meat in the fridge too.
