Just went to break saying Buster Olney had news on what Reds GM Wayne Krivsky "is doing."

Present tense.

Wonder if Karl Ravech misspoke when he said that?

We shall see in about 90 seconds.

"is doing" means to me that his trades as a whole.

But that's just me.

Since they've posted it over on the reds.com site, I imagine Wayne is through for the day. The 4:00 news conference will just recap.

Karl Ravech is a moron.

He basically said the Reds have nobody in our starting rotation besides Arroyo.

How about Harang?

That has nothing to do with it.

He could be done, but I doubt reds.com knows if he is or not.

Buster Olney just owned Steve Phillips.

Where is Harold Reynolds when you need him?

Oh, and Lohse is going to the bullpen.

Olney just made Phillips look like an arse.

That is for sure... It was funny because Phillips had nothin to say.

From John Manuel (ESPN Chat)

. . anyway, I was surprised the Reds gave up Zach Ward, because he's one of their better pitching prospects. I also wasn't a fan of the Lopez and Kearns deal, though I didn't pan it as much as most of the known world. The bottom line is, the Reds have mediocre starting pitching and are hoping to capitalize on their offense and depth of position players to improve that pitching just enough to get into the playoffs. I think it's worth it for them to go for it as long as they aren't giving up their truly elite prospects, which are Homer Bailey, Joey Votto, Travis Wood and Jay Bruce (in order, more like Bailey, Bruce, Wood and Votto). That's a nice quartet, and if the Reds improve their big league club without touching those four, then Wayne Krivsky has done his job.

I know the pen was bad - real bad. I wouldn't ever deny that. But it also wasn't the only hole on this team. It seems like Kriv is overcompensating for a well-known weakness, while letting the less-obvious things pass by unheeded.

With what Wayne K has done this month... We just gotta hope our starters can get through atleast 6 or 7 innings.

We have a good pen now.... If JR wakes up... You'll see the runs start rolling in.

Harang's never pitched for the Red Sox or Yankees therefore he doesn't exist.

Is it possible that Ward was not promoted so as not to hurt his trade value (or to enhance his value)? Maybe the coaches don't think he projects?

This is pure speculation on my part. I've never seen the kid pitch, and his numbers look real good.

Basically, how Phillips called the Reds-Nats trade the worst trade in the past ten years and how the Reds bullpen ERA had went down two full runs. Phillips came back and was basically speechless.

And it's no thanks to the trade. Because of Majewski's recent toxicity he and Bray have a combined 7.50 ERA. Right now there's no way to put a smiley face on the Majewski end of this deal.

If Phillips called any trade the worst of the past 10 years he's opening himself up to a crusher and it sure wouldn't have anything to do with current Reds ERA's.

Kazmir for Zambrano was Jim Duquette's handiwork.

My bad, I wonderd that almost as soon as I typed it.

Oh well, if Phillips were any good he'd still be employed as a GM, not a critic of those who are.
