Omar cited that Dave Williams adds some depth to their starting pitching. Omar remarked that Williams was playing for a team that was under .500 and would have better protection with the Mets offense supporting him. He was also happy to share that he got the Reds to pick up a large part of the salary.

Dang, hopefully not too much. BTW the Reds are 7 games over .500. Omar needs to check his facts. Hopefully, he got the part about the Reds taking some of the salary wrong too. :-o

Maybe he meant they were under .500 when Williams was pitching... :-b

No, I believe that was when they had the best record in MLB, no thanks to him though.

Omar was referring to Williams from 2005. As a .500 pitcher for a team that was under .500. He wanted depth and he got a major league arm in a trade for an arm that wasn't ready yet and priobably won't amount to being a top end of the rotation guy anyway.

The way he pitched in Cincy he'll be lucky if he sees the majors again. Especially in New York, I was very excited when I heard the news that they had sent him down this past weekend ;-D
