Colorado is interested in bringing Fogg back.

Here's to them taking away one of our mistakes.

I'd be in favor of it myself. Don't rule out a team like the Yankees either, who have some injuries and always seem to get veterans.

Hi, everyone! New member here - just wanted to introduce myself. Looks like you have an awesome forum and I look forward to engaging in some spirited discussion!

By the way - sorry to post this here - I know it's completely off topic! Looks like you have some pretty strict rules around new members starting their own new threads.

Believe it or not, the only reason I'd trade him is if we were planning on bringing up someone from AAA to be a long reliever. I like Fogg's role on the team now. He's been pitching much better in that role. We just need to give him more time there. Plus, it's a nice luxury to have. . . I still believe he could be effective as a starter in case of emergency until Bailey gets up here.

His ERA as a long reliever is 5.56, even with those 5 ER on Sunday, 2.07 before that start.

Call me crazy, but he's still has value on this team.

I think the Yankees would take a chance on Arroyo rather than Fogg.

I wish someone would take a chance on him. He would probably turn it right around in a new setting. Maybe Cincinnati just isn't the right fit for him.

Arroyo to the Yanks would be very nice.

I hope this writer knows what he's talking about. The Fogg experiment hasn't went so well here.

What about when Homer gets up, and we have Belisle go to the pen?

Fogg for an OF prospect? Yep.

Fogg is ok, he had a few bad starts but has pitched fairly well out of the bullpen giving us innings. Its not like we are paying the guy 27 million over 3 years.

Yeah, why trade a cheap guy who is perfect in the mop up role? He can work to save both our young pitchers when they need a rest and the bullpen when the game is out of hand. I'd keep Fogg around at least until Bailey, Thompson, or Maloney are deemed ready.

I would trade Fogg back to the Rockies for either Casey Weathers or Chirs Nelson. Either one of them would be great trade for the reds in my opinion ed. Nelson SS is an number 1 pick from couple years ago and is still 21 and Weathers is RP from Rice university- last year number 1 pick for Colorado.

I'd trade Fogg for one of those humidors in a second.:D

Jocketty is not denying the reports.


Reds general manager Walt Jocketty did not deny a Denver Post report that Cincinnati and Colorado were in active trade talks involving Fogg.

"Everyone is looking for pitching, let's put it that way," Jocketty said.

At least we can get something out of Walt, a little different than Krivsky.
