This trade doesn't make any sense. :?: What does White give the Padres that Trammel doesn't already give them? Plus having to give up a pitching prospect on top of that?

Well, if White's healthy, he's probably better than Trammel, but he's never healthy, so it seems like a dumb trade to me.

It may be that Trammell has a multi-year contract whereas White has only this year left on his, and the Padres are trying to clear salary for the upcoming off season.

Yeah, this is a pretty dumb trade. Padres have no hitting, and will have even less of it 4/30/03. Thats when Rondell will go on the DL again for the umpteenth time heh heh.

San Diego Padres....Nice Stadium, Bad Team.

This is exactly what's going on but I don't see why they had to give up a good prospect like Mark Phillips.

well king george has to give up something for pitching when his 7 starters are only pitching good rather than great.
