Redding and May for Quantrill????

Postby Strasil42 » Sat Jul 02, 2005 12:42 pm


Tim Redding - S - SD

The Padres are set to part with Tim Redding and Darrell May to get Paul Quantrill from the Yankees.
Two pitchers that seem done and one that has never really gotten started. Redding is still the most valuable property in the deal, but New York hardly seems like the place for him to turn his career around. This seems like a bad idea for the Padres, even if it will save them a little money. The New York Daily News suggests that both Redding and May will be sent to Triple-A Columbus by the Yankees. Redding, though, is out of options, so if the Yankees try to send him down, they may lose him. Jul. 2 - 12:36 pm

I couldn't care less about this deal. Quantrill has nothing left and anything in return is fine with me :-b

Can anyone give a synopsis about the Redding and May?

Doesn't seem like much of an impactful trade at all for either team to be honest.

If anything, I'd say SD doesn't make out TOO bad as it's basically a dump for dump deal. If Quantrill can find his sinker again, which is probably unlikely, he's at least another cog in the solid SD bullpen with Otsuka, Linebrink and Hoffman.

As for Redding and May, again, I don't see them making a big impact. More like fillers I guess but like Blank said, anything gotten for Quantrill they should take.

Redding lived about 20 minutes from me. I got to see him pitch for MCC a few times and pitched a complete same shutout the first time I saw him. I actually got to chill in the dugout and talked with him in between innings. He's a quiet kid but can be funny as hell. He walked back in and said "you see that retard fall for the changeup?". He has confidence in his stuff, but he gets down if he gets hit early. When he is down he doesnt want to get back up. If he cruises through an inning or two he will be just fine.

I picked him up late last year and started him for a bit, moved him to my bench, and had to end up dropping him. It was double tough because he is a hometown guy, who plays for my favorite team.

Best of luck to him if he goes to NY.
