Padres Deal Randy Wolf To Astros For Pitching Prospect
Randy Wolf hasn't been all that this year, and despite playing in a home park that favors pitchers like no other anywhere else in baseball, the ex-Dodger is doing appreciably worse this year, with a 6-10 record, a 4.74 ERA, and a 82 ERA+. Those noting that his ERA was only a hundredth of a point worse than his 2007 figure with the Dodgers should also note that the league ERA has declined by about 0.70 from last year to this, which may be a function of the fact that we haven't gone through August and September yet. This is probably a pretty even trade for both teams.
