Re: Justin Germano
11larkin11 is right. The Padres weren't brilliant for acquiring him. In fact, the Padres were the first team to give up on him when they traded him to the Reds with Travis Chick for Joe Randa, of all people. Not only did the Reds and Phillies conclude that Germano's ceiling is as a #4 or #5 starter, the Padres did, too. At least the Reds got something for him. Granted, Cormier didn't work out, and feel free to chastise them for that, but in my opinion, the Reds deserve no flack just for parting with Germano.
