That was a horrible trade for the Reds. Not quite sure what we were thinking there.

why was it so horrible ???Salmon was a good pitcher in the limited time he saw. He looked like he was more efficent, and smarter each time out. He had a 4.13 ERA, which was much better than a few members of the Reds bullpen last year.

It was a good deal. Salmon's time with the Reds wasn't spectacular and they didn't foresee him in their future plants. So, they shipped him out and waited until they saw something they liked.

I always like Salmon's arm myself.
