Ray King traded to Milwaukee for APTBNL

So it would appear that the Brewers are shoring up their bullpen in preparation for their pennant race campaign. The Nationals GM Jim Bowden traded Ray King, a left-handed specialist, to the Brewers for a player to be named later.

Let's hope for our sakes that the player is Ryan Braun, and that Bowden can convince him to move from 3rd base to 2nd, or shortstop. After all, we have to keep the "Ryan" thing going, right?

This means that the team's new left-handed specialist will be Arnie Muñoz. According to the official press release:

"The trade means Arnie Munoz will be Washington's lefty specialist, and the club wants to see if he has a future in that role. Munoz went 3-1 with a 2.56 ERA in 54 appearances with Triple-A Columbus, where opponents hit .229 against him."

I will miss Ray King, as I miss every player the Nats ever trade, but I wish him well. He played in Milwaukee for 3 seasons so I'm sure that he has some friends there and will settle back into life in Milwaukee just fine.

Thanks for all of your help this season Ray - best of luck in Milwaukee!
