bray i think can be a good one.majeski ,we shall see.
now in trade talks ,you hear nothing of reds.are they done dealing.
can we not expect the rolen or mcguire type acquisition like stl had?
if no then why ?was attendence not what he expected?no one good left on market?
this question was also raised in thread on ORG but not directly addressed.
if this team wanted to "bite the bullet" , looks like they could get another starter as the asking price on many is going down reportedly.
or there is tejeda...would i love to see him in reds uni. you bet.rich needs a good bat behind him in the 5 hole.
i am not in favor of trading bailey bruce but as i said the asking price seems to be dropping.
Your post was a little tricky to read...
But, from what I can understand, I will say this: I believe one of our catchers is going to go before the deadline. It's going to either be LaRue or Valentin, as Ross is a bargain and produces well for being one.
