John Perrotto of BP says that the Fish would be willing to move Ross for a bullpen arm. Any interest in reacquiring Cody?

One good Ross deserves another. Send them David and call up Hannigan for a 2nd half audition

Might just have been easier to keep him rather than giving him away.

Not if it requires Burton or Roenicke. Anyone else though would be fine.

It depends on which bullpen arm you would have to give up.
He could be useful if both Dunn and Griffey are gone next season.

.258 .308 .502, in 302 PA's this year.

Nice SLG, rest doesn't really impresses.

I wouldn't want to go into 2009 with a couple of Ross type players to go with Bruce.

Jerry Hairston is this year's Cody Ross. Ross road his .374 BABIP in '07 into a pretty nice 200 PAs, but surprisingly that wasn't sustainable. He does have power and that probably makes him more valuable than Hairston, but Ross makes a lot of outs.

But maybe this is really his breakout season! We could lock him up for a few years and finally fix that CF problem! It's gonna be awesome!

he might be available on waivers.

I wouldn't mind Cody Ross as a 4th outfielder but nothing more than that.

I thought from day 1 getting rid of him for nothing was a mistake. I never understood that. It was actually a nice pick up for nothing, but we let him go so naaaa. you lose.
I wouldn't trade Affelt. I'd like to see us sign him again. He's been a nice addition to the pen.

Reds1, I agree totally. Kid looked to me like a better player than Kearns from the very beginning. I just consider it one of those many moves Wayne seemed to make just to be doing something. At least Walt hasn't shown that tendency!

We really need the Reds looking to obtain league average players if I understood the stats guys correctly on the board here, and I have the utmost faith in their work. Is Cody Ross league average? .

I'd say same for Cantu. Very nice ball player and we had him and just let him go. Pretty nice righty. Just think Dunn and Griffey gone then Votto to LF and Cantu can play 1B. Pretty nice replacement. Cody Ross could have been in the mix for 4th OF and a spot start, but alas are these the guys to put us over the top no, but they both improve this bench and both could start if we had injuries and do very well. I like Cantu too, but we're talking about Ross.

Agree absolutely on Cantu, too. I'd love to have him for next year. Put him on first base, put Votto in LF, take Dunn's money and address some of the other problems--Cf, SS, C, two more starters (assuming Arroyo goes), two more good bullpen arms. Do all that and we have a chance to compete.

I know a lot of people on the board were not impressed with Cantu but I thought that was a pretty good pick up and was SHOCKED when they let him go.

He couldn't catch a cold.

I know the Marlins have had interest in David Weathers...

People seem to have forgotten how bad Cantu's defense really is.

Cantu love is something that baffles me. The guy is a horrible defender, an average bat, a poor runner. People want to fix a leaky defense with a worse defender? Fix an erratic offense with an erratic hitter?

Then there is Cody. Ross is a 4th outfielder. Some nice pop. Barely a .300 OBP. Lots of whimpers with an occasional roar. No thanks.

+1

My sentiments exactly. I wonder if their appeal is because they're currently with another team. If they were on the Reds roster with their current stats I can't help but think most would be calling for them to be DFA'd.
