Re: Starting Pitcher On The Horizon?
Let me throw this idea out:
Reds trade Claussen and LaRue to the Phillies for RHP Jon Lieber and catcher Mike Liberthal.
The thinking: Even though the Reds don't need Lieberthal, they take his remainder of his contract in order to get out of LaRue's contract come 2007. Lieberthal will be a free agent at the end of the season. Can we say Claussen is the Austin Kearns of the pitching staff? A guy who hasn't lived up to his hype yet we keep waiting.
If you think small, you'll go nowhere in life.
