    He's flying in around 6pm and will be in uniform for the game tonight.

    He took the Number 18.

    Can someone explain this trade to me? I don't get it. :icon_shrug:

    They could have had Jr. for nothing and kept Gerut.

    They did get him for next to nothing.

    They traded a guy with a .248 OBP for him.

    If Jody had been traded for a player not named Gwynn, would the response be any different?

    I like the trade. It also saves a little money...Gwynn will make the league minimum from what I read.

    Gwynn belongs in San Diego, glad to see him in our uni.

    Looking forward to the Brewers save chances with Gwynn in the lineup :lol

    If Gerut's last name was Giles would you be upset that we traded a player with a .248 OBP?
