with a crowded OF in New York the Yankees may be looking to dump one and Sheffield would be the one to go because he has a club option for '07 and Cashman will most likely not pick it up..

and with that said we need to get rid of the cancer in LF...

Orioles Get:
Adam Dunn

Reds Get:
Adam Loewen
cash

Rotation:
1. Jason Schmidt (via free agency)
2. Aaron Harang
3. Bronson Arroyo
4. Adam Loewen (via trade see above)
5. Kyle Lohse/Eric Milton/Homer Bailey/Elizardo Ramirez

Bullpen:
Kerry Wood CL (via free agency)
David Weathers
Todd Coffey
Bill Bray
Scott Shoeneweis
Gary Majewski
Matt Belisle/Jason Standridge

Lineup:
1. Luis Castillo 2B (via free agency)
2. Brandon Phillips SS
3. Ken Griffey Jr. CF
4. Gary Sheffield RF (via free agency)
5. Edwin Encarnacion 3B
6. Scott Hatteberg/Joey Votto 1B
7. Preston Wilson LF (via free agency)**
8. David Ross C
9. P
**Alfonso Soriano or Carlos Lee would be nice but not enough money

Bench:
Javier Valentin C
Ryan Freel UTIL
Norris Hopper OF
Todd Hollandsworth OF
Juan Castro IF

if that happens up there ^^^ hello PLAYOFFS!

not really freel cannot play everyday when he does he gets injured often and doesnt hit well... wilson gives us pop in the order and a pretty good glove

Switch Castro for Aurilla and you got a decent lineup.Aurilla will not be back and Wayne signed Castro to a 2 year deal.But over all your lineup and pitching satff look solid.

yeah he is... he makes stupid comments in interviews, its obvious he doesnt give 100% everyday, he strikes out way too much, and his defense is well we all know about his defense.

He doesn't strike out as much so he's alright. Cancers are guys that strike out alot and play below-average defense.

Ohhh I thought it was a guy that admitted to tanking games and messing up on purpose in an effort to get traded. My fault

I don't like a lot of this but I will say that I would love to see Loewen pitching for the Reds. for the love of God, stay away from Kerry Wood, even in the bullpen.

What? Wow, this is a new low on the RedsZone. Frankly, IMO, I think Adam needs the offseason to get his head clear. It's been a season fraught with all sorts of things going on. I appreciate Sheffield's talent, but I don't believe he fits our needs (just my opinion). I'll still take Dunn anyday. Not a cancer at all.

what can it hurt to get wood as a closer.. no one else has worked.. with his stuff he would be unhittable and the amount of innings would give his arm a rest

swingman24
09-25-2006, 03:54 PM
ok so a right handed power hitter doesnt fit our needs... can u name any of those kind of players on the team??

CTA513

Jeff Conine in LF
Ken Griffey Jr. in CF
Gary Sheffield in RF

That way they can be the only outfield in the majors with an average age around 37.

He will command way too much money for a product that is way too fragile. Would you pay a thousand bucks for a cell phone that will be AWESOME when it works but makes no guarantees that it will? This team of all teams should be wary of expensive, injury-prone players.

You want to get rid of Adam Dunn the cancer for Gary Sheffield the team player???

LOL... I hope you were just trolling for a reaction, b/c that is one of the silliest comparisons between two players I've ever seen or read.

Worst thread ever.

vaticanplum

I do have a question about something kind of related to this thread. When did "cancer" (a cancer in left field, a clubhouse cancer) become common baseball talk? Was it a sportswriter who first used it or was it Internet talk or what? Frankly I find it a little offensive. Not to get all serious, but it is of course a terrible disease, and one largely out of human control, so I don't really think it's appropriate to use it to refer to players. I'm not criticizing anyone specifically here because I doubt people even think that much about it, but it seems inappropriate to me, and not just because regardless of how you feel about the word it is entirely inappropriate to apply to Adam Dunn.

No, in particular, Gary Sheffield doesn't fit in our plans, IMO. He's been a great player, but he's no Adam Dunn.

If you want to cut down on strikeouts, Preston Wilson isnt the guy to get.

Unless the Giants go with Bonds, Finley and Alou!

I'm pretty sure his comment was about Sheffield and not Dunn.

If Adam Dunn is cancer, Gary Sheffield is AIDS.


(Don't blame me, he used "cancer" first. Don't take this post seriously, just pointing out how inane this thread is.)

IMO, with the Reds being in the fledgling process of a rebuilding effort, why would we want to bring in Sheffield and that specter and enigma that associated him with the BalCo goings on? For the few shortcomings that Dunn has, he at least does not carry the baggage of being a cheater.

Plus, I've always felt that Sheffield was pretty much a bunghole. At least Dunn is a likeable guy

Sheffield may not be the right choice. But getting a very good/great middle of the lineup hitter at an advanced stage of his career may be a good idea, particularly if Griffey or Dunn is traded.

Reds have had success with Ron Gant, Kevin Mitchell, Greg Vaughn, Dave Parker. No long term deals, late in their careers, but really helped the team.

stay very far away from over the hill players whose earlier numbers may have been chemically influenced. This means guys like Sheff, Gonzalez, etc.

One year ago the team was flush with OFs now the Reds head into an offseason needing at least two. What happened?

I think a move to 1st would be good for him and the Reds.

Also, say no to Sheff in RF next year.

Old, expensive, injured.

Not a good idea.

Your talking about a player who gets injured too often, then list us getting Kerry Wood? :)

I know we have a team that can somewhat be competitive, heck look at this season, why not go after one or two young ones that could compliment the Baileys, Bruces, and Vottos here late next season and especially 2-5 years down the road....now that would be ideal and I would think be the way to GO!!!!!
