Not-so-in-depth Trade Analysis

Surprisingly enough, Richard has yet to post his opinion on the Redding & May for Quantrill trade, replete with graphs and tables of alphabet-soup statistics. Have no fear, as I'm sure it's coming soon.

(Richard: I'm waiting for a real trade to break out tables and graphs.)

Based purely on the personnel involved, I have mixed feelings. Losing the worse-than-nothing entity that is Darrell May, along with his $3.2-million (GULP!) salary, is a huge positive. And while I think Paul Quantrill can still be an asset in a contending bullpen, I'm not sure that Redding might not make Kevin Towers regret this deal.

(Richard: I don't believe Tim Redding will be effective this year. I expect Quantrill to be effective this year. In the future, I wouldn't be surprised to see Redding succeed. However, I doubt Towers will regret this solid trade.)

Given the current age and health issues besetting the Yankee rotation, I wouldn't be surprised to see Redding in their rotation before the end of the season. I'd be even less surprised to see him run off 45 wins for them over the next few years.

I wish Towers could have thrown Nevin in somehow. Now that would have made Richard happy.

(Richard: You would have seen an article if Towers had screwed some team into taking Nevin off his hands.)

that I felt this deal was a good one if the Padres were able to save money. I read [somewhere] that the amount saved ended up being only $199k. If that's the case, I don't think we saved enough. Though gurarrenteeing that May won't start for us is probably a good thing... Oh, now Reyes is?

Towers, there's another reliever you need to trade so Bochy will stop using him...
