Re: Reds trade for A's pitcher Saarloos
Darn, I wish Belhorn would have signed at this time last year. His Dad was a clinician at my vet school.
Saarloos for Schaffer is an uninspiring move to me. Nothing really wrong with Saarloos, but I don't see any reason for him to be a lot better than any of the Reds other candidates for the 5th spot. I would rather that Schaffer had been bumped up to Louisville last year and given a shot in the majors this season. The 2007 version of the Reds is unlikely to be any better than last years team. Better to take the opportunity to sift through the number of young relievers in the Reds system than to spend multi-millions on the vets they will be employing.
