Yup. I'm a little worried about this one. Something tells me this move is not going to be for someone we expected and it's going to be for a price none of us will be very happy with. If young pitching is going the other way, sounds like a move for a SP. Color me scared. There seems to be a discrepancy between what Ownership wants to do and what Walt wants. Doesn't sound good to me...

Although he may not have earned it yet, Walt is a man I trust at the helm. I honestly think he has a good sense of what's best for the team and how to make moves. In that past he's been a guy to make big, oftentimes good, moves at the deadline. I think, as potential buyers, a move on sunday would make me feel that I wasn't overpaying. It seems too early for a blockbuster that would go in our favor.

UPDATE: No Heisey or Alonso in the lineup.

Anyone see Shields for Alonso, Wood and Heisey as a possibility?

Someone mentioned on Twitter which I didn't even think about either...

What if it's someone on the ML roster and Wood is getting called up?

That would be ideal! But that leaves Fred Lewis to play LF all by himself. Maybe more pieces involved and Upton coming the other way to play LF?

Say it was a trade, does it matter if he is "rescheduled?" The point being, as long as he isn't in the lineup tonight, he can be traded, right?

You have to think about what it could mean with "unpopular" trade with some fans. I mean those of us who follow the Reds and know baseball economics would love to see someone take on Arroyo's salary for the next two year. However, to the casual person who watches the Reds occasionally, trading Arroyo would be upsetting.

Going for Bourn is just not smart, horrible agent, not much left on contract. Would much rather go hard after Pence.

According to everything I'm seeing MLB network screwed up.

Wood is pitching tomorrow for LOUISVILLE.

The official Bats twitter account even posted that Wood is pitching tomorrow and John Fay says it's a screw up also.

If either Leake or Wood is being considered in a trade right now, it would make sense for the Reds to pull him out tonight. Since they can't come out and say what's going to happen until the deal is official, the logical thing is to "reschedule" him for tomorrow. They can't say they are taking Wood down because "he's close ot being traded", or "he might fill in for Leake tomorrow because he's close to being traded". Nothing will be announced until after the trade is.

Where is all this Pence/Bourne/Stubbs stuff coming from? does any of it have any backing to it? I did hear Kurkjian say last night the Reds like Upton, and he emphasized they really like Pence, but other than that I haven't heard anything legit..

I'll believe it when I see it.

Reds probably just put that out there to see if anyone makes a crazy trade offer.

I still wish we could trade with the Dodgers. They have what I want.

Dodgers are just so screwed up right now management/ownership wise I don't think they have any clue what they want to do or how to do it.

I'm not sure that MLB would even allow a trade of one of their big guys until the ownership thing is settled. If you try to make that deal, you run the risk of having the deal vetoed by the league and your next targets being gone.

Are we going to be the supposed 3rd team needed in the Pence to the Phillies deal?

I am going to sit back and say nothing, other than wait and see what happens. When I wake up Monday morning, I will see if the Reds management has done what is needed to help put a championship quality team on the field, either by making productive moves by trade, or by promoting from within with dead weight being jettisoned. Have a good weekend.

Jocketty doesn't expect anything to happen as far until Sunday. Sounds like other teams are still asking too much. #reds More on blog soon

I know...and I'm not saying there IS something about to pop. I just never listen to what a team has to say when it comes to trades or draft picks. 99% of it is misinformation to mislead other teams.

I could see the Reds actually being very close, but hung up on one point. So Jocketty makes the comment about "not being close" and "teams asking too much" hoping to get the other team to blink. Who knows?
