Brewers Trade for Ray Durham

The Brewers have acquired Ray Durham from the Giants for practically nothing--the Giants only get fringe prospects Steve Hammond and Darren Ford, neither of whom figure to have much of a career. Good work by the Brewers: Durham is pretty limited at this stage of his career, but he is posting a .385 OBP this year while Rickie Weeks struggles to stay above the Mendoza Line. Weeks is still a pretty promising player, but letting Durham start a couple days a week seems like a smart thing to do.
