I hope the Reds do make a trade today, but I'm not so sure it's going to happen.

I could see us picking up Redman, Leiber, or another SP that would only cost 2 marginal prospects. Yet, I see other teams probably willing to pay more than us (in terms of prospects) and being more aggressive. So, I am going to vote "no", in hopes of being wrong. I'd love to get a guy (even like Redman) because with Claussen's health questionable, and Gernamo not being the answer, we really need a body in the #5 slot.

It's going to be fun to see how the Soriano sweepstakes pans out today as well.

Yes, they will acquire a middle reliever from the Phillies </prediction>

I voted yes just because I would like to see us involved in something today that can help us out.

I know for a fact that I won't get much done at work today reading up on trades up until 4.

Wow, you must be psychic. It's too bad you didn't say it was a lefty, that would have been really impressive. ;)

That will prove over the next 6 hours to be the 17 million dollar question.

LOL, well maybe we can change the poll to "will the Reds acquire a starting pitcher?"

Cormier is a solid pickup, however, starting pitching remains the biggest need. I hope Wayne isn't going to stand pat in that area just because Claussen had a decent outing at Louisville a few days ago.

According to 1530, there is a 5:00 news conference.

There has to be something else coming because if Wayne was done, he'd just announce it now AND Cormier by himself isn't worthy of a news conference.

This might just be an interesting day afterall.

Was there a presser for Eddie Guardado?

I don't believe for him himself there was. There was a conference to go over all the moves that day and he was one of them.

This thread should be renamed- Will the Reds make another trade today. I say yes!

Well, I'm starting to think that the Reds wouldn't trade Gernamo if they didn't have another starting pitcher coming in. Considering we have nobody to pitch in the #5 slot if Claussen is still hurt/ineffective.

Yes. Something Peripreal - nothing major.

Those of us that waited a bit did a lot better on this poll than you early risers.
