LaTroy Update

Whelp, it has been exactly 15 days since Hawkins was traded to the Giants for Jerome Williams and David Aardsma, and although I know we ALL have turned the page, I feel now is a good time to evaluate how much better off the Cubs are.

Hawkins (SF)

5    Apearances
4.0  IP
7/7  Runs/ER
0/1  Sv/L
5.48 ERA (pvs w/Cubs 3.32)

Williams(AAA Iowa)

3    Starts
18.1 IP
6/6  Runs/ER
1/0  W/L
2.95 ERA

I could not find any Cubs stats on Aardsma, leading me to believe he has no appearances thus far.

So, there are the numbers thus far for both parties in the trade.  Clearly it was a good trade on paper, but anyone would tell you that this trade had to be made because of Hawkins' play while he was a Cub, blowing leads and the like.  Looks like his struggles continue while the Cubs picked up a nice prospect, although I could see Williams used as bait when the trading deadline nears.  Any thoughts on whether or not they should keep Williams would be appreciated!
