Weathers trade = cash

My Milwaukee colleague Adam McCalvy first reported this but the Reds have now confirmed on Friday that they received an undisclosed amount of cash from the Brewers to complete the Aug. 9 trade for reliever David Weathers.

Now 40 years old, Weathers posted a 3.92 ERA in 68 games combined with the Reds and Brewers this season. Milwaukee holds a $3.7 million option on Weathers for 2010.

Considering next year’s budget issues this makes more sense than a minor league player.

It would be cool to see an winter/fall breakdown of how the SS battle will play out in ST. It was interesting to read how well Cozart is playing. Could he leapfrog Valaika?
