KING SITS, WAITS: The Reds have had interest in Ray King, and recently placed left-hander Kent Mercker on the disabled list. The Rockies didn't pursue a deal for Reds catcher Jason LaRue because they don't want to block prospect Chris Iannetta's path. A straight-up exchange for Boston's Rudy Seanez remains a possibility. Talks regarding Julian Tavarez cooled dramatically over the weekend because of the Rockies' concerns regarding the money left on his contract.

I hope not. He might sit on somebody.

I was thinking from the thread title that this was a plea for Rey Rey to come up from Louisville. I think I like this idea less. ;)

Olmedo yes, King heck no!

Olmedo's been slumping. He's down below .300 and made two errors last night. But I'd still not mind if he were the replacement for an Aurilia trade or Castro cashiering.

As aresult, Shealy could be included in the Ray King, Julian Tavarez/Rudy Seanez swap. From the Pirates, they seek Matt Capps and such a deal will not happen....This rumor was last updated on 05:01 PM - Jul 24, 06. The source of this rumor was Denver Post.

What if LaRue, Belisle (Who should be off the DL within the next couple days), and PTBN were sent to Colorado for Shealy and King?

The Rox are asking for Hayden Penn in exchange for Shealy. Don't think they're gonna settle for Belisle.

They asked but were supposedly rejected.


The Orioles are said to be interested in Ryan Shealy, but reportedly turned down a Shealy-for-Hayden Penn deal.
Given the number of teams in the hunt for Shealy, that seems fairly reasonable. Expect him to be dealt within the week.

The Rockies should be looking to deal Helton and eating some of his salary.

They will get a whole lot more for Shealy.

King vs. Left: .244
King vs. Right: .377

Shackelford vs. Left: .143
Shackelford vs. Right: .450

Might as well just use Shackelford.

I'll like the Reds to get that Rockies pitcher who threw the shutout last night. ;)

One name in the Rockies system that I WANT:

SP Ubaldo Jimenez


LaRue and cash to the Rockies for Jimenez and I'm dancing a jig.

I don't like either idea, really.

But they will be able to keep Shealy. Helton is a shell of his former self.

I know what you're saying but the Rockies are probably thinking about a run in the NL West right now. Dangling Shealy will net them help for the stretch run. Helton most likely will not.

There is only one way I would welcome Ray King to the Reds. That would be if they would let ME sit on his freakin shoulder. I am not a small man.

That's not going to happen.
