The Milwaukee Brewers shocked the baseball world on Monday by trading Josh Hader for San Diego Padres for what you could call it a warm comeback. Brewers bullpen colleague Devin Williams was asked about the Hader trade on Tuesday. Let’s just say he wasn’t thrilled about it.
Williams didn’t seem to understand why the top-seeded Brewers would move Hader early MLB trade term. It was obviously a dark moment for him when he saw the guy he had worked with for years in the trade.
Here’s what he said:
Williams and Hader have locked down the back end of the Brewers’ bullpen over the past four seasons, forming perhaps the best late-inning tandem in the game. Hader is a four-time All-Star, two-time MLB First Team selection and three-time National League Player of the Year. Both guys played in the All-Star Game together this season.
In six years with the Brewers, Hader had 125 saves in 143 opportunities with a 2.48 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and 541 strikeouts in 316.1 innings. The left-hander will be extremely difficult to replace.
