I've read Jay MORONotti's collumn on the net this morning, but what are some of the responses.... namely Boers and Bernstien....

I only listened to B&B briefly today (about 10 minutes during lunch) and they appeared to like the trade, especially if a SP is picked up with the extra money.

Default Player to be Named?

Anyone with infomration on the infamous PtbNL in this deal? 2b Keith Ginter was mentioned yesterday but never confirmed. Could it be (pending a physical) the Brewers SS (can't remember name) who was in winter ball rehabbing? Maybe it's Ben Sheets but KW wanted to piss everyone off initially only to come back a week later and say our SP pitching problems are now solved...LOL. Any word when we might find out?

Kenny Williams said it's going to be a minor league player.

Probably a minor leaguer, who by MLB rules cant be named or traded until later in the year because of the way the contracts work. It most lkely won't be a name that any one except maybe some of the scouts might recognize... Anyone thinking Ginter or Sheets, is way off.

B&B seem all for it - cuz of the flexibility it provides.

Why couldn't the minor leaguer be named today? Didn't the Braves just trade one of their top minor leaguers to the Brewers to get Kolb a few days ago? Different contract situations? Or has KW just not decided which minor leaguer from the Brewers' system he wants?

I'll try and explain it a little better. It's like when a PLayer on a Major leage team signs as a FA with a team. That player can not be traded until Mid-May. Most likely the player has already been chosen by both teamsbut can not be announced until a certain date because of some rule. Or it could be a list of players that Kenny gets to pick from some time in the near future after a little more scouting or research is done... Either way it's not going to be any one close to major league ready, at least in the eyes of the Brewers.

I like this trade, it essentially fills 3 holes for us. We have a leadoff hitter, one more addition to the bullpen, and it frees up money to complete our rotation. Carlos was probably our best overall player, but we have filling 3 holes by trading him. Hopefully it works our for both teams...all the best to carlos.
