Travis Wood, who was supposed to start for the Bats tonight,is not in the lineup, Maloney is pitching. This could be to give him a rehab start, but maybe something else is going on...

I've been thinking that Arroyo should be added to the DL. I think the mono thing is still affecting him.

Wood and Arroyo are pretty similar pitchers except for throwing from different side of the mound.

Maybe that's an approach that needs to be made. Get Bronson healthy, let Wood have a go at it.

per Sheldon:

Wood now pitching tomorrow for L'Ville. Maloney tonight-- RT @jackbooth27: any word on why Wood is scratched from his start tonight? Trade?

Classic trade deadline mixup. Guy gets bumped a day in the rotation, and whamo traded for king felix.

Wood for Felix, straight up. Mariners take that, right?

Quite possibly.

On the other hand, I think it's plausible that Wood is part of a trade package on the table, and they're holding him out until the deal is either made or isn't.

I honestly think this is the case. It's no coincidence, IMHO, Upton, Span, Desmond and Ramos were all sitting the other night simultaneously.

I think clubs do often sit players this time of year if they think there's a chance a deal will be reached.

My hunch is they've moved Wood back a day to buy them some time if they have something in advanced discussions.

Does that mean someone at the ML level is on the move?

MLB Network says Wood is pitching for Mike Leake tomorrow...

This would mean one of the Reds' holy triumvirate of pitchers is being traded if that report is accurate.

FYI, Mike Leake is known to have been an Astros draft target two years ago.

I would certainly think (hope) they aren't trading him for just Bourn.

Why?

Brain Gesinslaw (sp?) didn't say why just that he was starting in place of Leake.

Quick, somebody find out if Mike Leake has been in a Macy's recently!

A trade of Bourn for Leake would mean the Astros are getting the steal of the century.

(I'll be here all night, folks. Be sure to tip your waitress)

If its a bigger deal than Bourn, who else is in on it? Wandy?

Pence is said to cost a lot, right?

How about Leake for Pence.

How about Leake and Heisey for Bourn and Wandy?

I dont think Leake is enough for Underpants, according to the rumors surrounding him..

In all seriousness, I will punch a wall if we give up on a quality pitcher like Leake to get a rent-a-player + 1 like Bourn.

That would be odd. IF Leake is traded, I'd think the Reds still wouldn't go out and announce a change for tomorrow until after a trade is announced.

The Twitter links seem to think MLB Network got it wrong, and Wood is scheduled to pitch tomorrow for Louisville, not Cincinnati.

Same here. I like Bourn...but not that much. Leake has the upside to be VERY good.
