This doesn't surprise me - whether you like his moves or not, WK has seen what the perceived weaknesses have been and attempted to address them. The #5 starter might still be in question in his mind - certainly SS ought to be.

From Will Carroll at Baseball Prospectus:

The Reds are nothing if not active. After reeling in Rheal Cormier and Kyle Lohse, the team is still looking for more deals, most focused on pitching. A couple sources are saying that Eric Milton could be dealt for a "more compatible" pitcher with similar salary or that could be considered a rental. Let's assume that "more compatible" means "less gopher balls."

Think for a minute, gang. If we do get that meaningful help to the starting rotation, who will go? Dunn? Griffey? Freel? Edwin? There are your trading chips that would get us that 5th starter. Who wants to trade those guys?

Now, that I'll go for. In a heartbeat...

if Milton's the one they're shopping, that takes several teams off the list...Royals etc. are looking to get younger.

Does the Giants need a fly ball pitcher with a fat contract?

OnBaseMachine

After reading Will's latest update, it seems Gil Meche is available. Please Wayne, go after him. Still only 27 and he has a solid .755 OPS against and 7.53 K/9.

ESPN just reported the Mets are closing in on a Robeto Hernandez/Oliver Perez deal with the Pirates. Perez is another guy I would like to have.

That's the point ! Nobody wanted Milton before, so why not aim high. Who could possibly take on his contract?

Call Jimbo, he has a cavern for a ballpark.

Regardless of opinions on the deals Krivsky has made to date and the July activity, this bodes for a very interesting Reds offseason, perhaps one that has not been seen since the 99-00 offseason. Let's hope this one takes the team in the right direction instead of ushering in another decade of futility

Milton for Livan?

Makes perfect sense to me, so it will never happen.

Livan would be good for the playoffs.

Milton to the Dodgers would be nice. We still have six games with LA and potentially 2 games with Milty on the mound. Actually, let's trade him within the division.

It could be Milton for Lieber.

I doubt the Phillies would want Milton back. Their ballpark is smaller than GABP.

Should remind everyone also that as the 4 o'clock deadline approaches that doesn't mean you won't hear deals announced later in the evening. Sometimes these deals get done shortly before the deadline but not announced until a few hours later. So, as 4 p.m. rolls around, don't give up hope yet...

I have a hard time believing the Dodgers would even consider that deal.

Why did you have to put that thought into my head?

Plus, remember that today is not the absolute deadline...it's the non-wavier deadline. The Reds could still get rid of Milton in August; with his performance vs. contract its unlikely anyone would claim him on waviers.

Webb is more compatible. Oh wait, he doesn't make enough money to offset Milton. Darn, there goes that idea :doh:

That is true. Teams need to have the basic deal done by 4 but many times a deal may be announced an hour or 2 after that. That is the whole reason for the 4 PM deadline. In the old days of the midnight deadline writers didn't like it because many times deals were not announced until 1 or 2 Am after their deadlines.

We'd still need a number five if we dealt Uncle Milty, but it would free a chunk of salary. Nobody likes us enough to do that though.

Good point. If its a contract-for-contract deal, then 7/31 is meaningless.
