Re: Hot Stove League show report
I heard the show, and while I wasn't planning on giving a report, I will post what I heard.
Several callers talked about Adam Dunn, most wanting him traded, and one guy said because he has no trade value they should put him at first and bat him seventh. Marty thinks that the Reds should make him available, and then let other clubs come to them, and wait for a good offer.
Luis Gonzalez would be a tremendous veteran pickup, and that they should sign him and then decide what to do with the other outfielders. Not mentioning the fact that only Norris Hopper is less attractive than a forty year old Luis Gonzalez.
Steve Stewart is getting some serious looks with some other clubs.
Once again a caller or two asked about Sean Casey, the first mention this week was around 6:45pm. Marty said that they already have Hatteburg
Several people gave Marty congrats for working with Thom, and asked his opinion on Brantley once more. Brantley will be an asset and knows the game............., Marty said.
One caller said that the only way to get a good pitcher was a sign one because you can never trade for a good one. Marty downplayed the chances of signing a free agent and never corrected the oblivious fault in the callers logic.
Another caller asked if the A's would trade Huston Street to the Reds. Marty said that the As would never trade a closer because they are so hard to come by, and that once you have a good one you NEVER trade them. He obviously hasn't read Moneyball.
I will post more if I remember.
The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.
