Rangers get Mike Adams from Padres

A day after acquiring Koji Uehara from the Orioles, the Rangers added to their bullpen again Sunday by acquiring Mike Adams from the Padres.

Adams, the most sought-after setup man on the market, has a 1.13 ERA in 48 appearances this year for San Diego. He has held opponents to a .453 OPS.

The Rangers paid a steep price for Adams, giving up both Joe Wieland, the pitcher who threw a no-hitter last week for Double-A Frisco, and Robbie Erlin, another top Double-A pitching prospect. The Padres had reportedly sought Wieland and Erlin in exchange for closer Heath Bell.

With the trading deadline a little more than an hour away, the Padres were saying it was likely they would keep Bell, who can be a free agent at the end of the year but very much wants to remain in San Diego. Even if Bell were to leave as a free agent, the Padres would get two high draft picks as compensation.

The 33-year-old Adams, in some ways, had more value to teams than Bell, because he is under control through 2012.

Keep your Cleveland Pittsburgh WS, keep your AL East, the Texas Rangers are still the most exciting team in the AL.  I said it all season last year and, ironically enough, I'm a die hard Giants fan.  Apparently Uehara and Adams have actually surrendered earned runs in their careers, but they've been lights out and nasty every time I've seen either of them in action.  These guys are both exremely solid and should give this Rangers team exactly the type of boost they'll need, exactly where they need it most.  These two trades make them my favorites to win it all this year.
