Something for Nothing

In a spare transaction today the Mets and Brewers swapped righties.
Jeremi Gonzalez, after yesterday’s no decision against the Phillies, was DFA after the game and sent to the land of beer and bratwurst.

Jeremi, we hardly knew ye...

Mike Adams, the Mets new acquisition, is a Native Texan that hails from Corpus Christi.

The 27 year old righty has pitched in 68 2/3 innings in the bigs and was once a highly touted prospect some in the club thought would be the future closer.

With Gonzalez out of options, it seems curious that he Brewers would be willing to give up anything for a guy just DFA’d and out of minor league options. I can't imagine many teams were lining up to pick Gonzalez off the waiver wire.

Not a sexy blockbuster trade; but it is a great trade as if Professor Rick and the Mets farm can turn this guy around he may turn out to be a useful diamond in the rough. A small risk for a guy the Mets were done with as a starter.

Remind me never to buy a used car from Omar Minaya…
