According to wire reports, the Brewers have acquired setup man Scott Linebrink for prospects Will Inman, Joe Thatcher, and Steve Garrison.  I'd say Inman is the prize of the deal.  More on this when I'm done with tonight's MetsBlog radio show!


Three prospects for a setup man! Good job, Padres! They're stacked w/ pitching and now have three prospects to add to their system.

Side note on that same page:

They mention Hillenbrand coming here after Dmitri gets shipped off. Don't know how I feel about that.

Decent fill in. Hillenbrand hit a bomb against the Nats in Toronto.

Smart move for both teams.  I give my stamp of approval.

About Hillenbrand from rotoworld.com:

Shea Hillenbrand, who has only been offered minor league contracts, is deciding between San Diego and another NL team.
The Braves, Marlins and Cardinals seem like reasonable candidates to be the other team in the mix.

how decent are these prospects? would we be happy if we traded rauch or chief for what SD got? is that a fair gauge?
