so essentially we traded Jose Capellan and another minor leaguer for Wes Obermueller...well, at least we won't have to see Kolb blow anymore games, and maybe Obermueller can do an ATL turnaround like so many other pitchers... too bad Mazzone is gone...

Good deal for Atlanta, they needed to get rid of this guy ASAP.
I don't think Obermueller is anything special, but I also think that he could do some decent work out of the bullpen. He also could start, which is also a plus.
Didn't Obermueller have a no-hitter into the 7th inning last year?

the brewers are also going to non-tender kolb so they can re-sign him at lower money



The Brewers will non-tender Danny Kolb on Dec. 20 and then likely re-sign him at a lesser salary. We thought it might be something like this, though it still doesn't really explain why they traded for him in the first place. In arbitration, the Brewers would have to pay Kolb at least $2.72 million next season. They'll probably work something out that would cut his salary back to $1 million or so. Dec. 7 - 8:46 pm et

This is the team that could make the NL Central the toughest in baseball. Cards and Astros have proved to be two of the top teams in MLB, and the Cubs are generally supposed to be good with that pitching, but a strong Brewers club would really make this a tough division... and hell, the Reds may even find some pitching some day.

I'd say this team could make a wild card run as early as next year. "Healthy Ben Sheets in 2006" should be the mantra for the Brew Crew this year.
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike

It does look like they know what they are doing there. With a couple of extra young arms in Bush and Jackson they have a very deep core of good young arms. Capellan will also be something special.
