Re: Should I make this playoff push?
I dont know, that is a very difficult thing to ponder as you being the Reds are for the 1st time on the opposite side of the Yanks, considering a probable One month rental for a big chunk of your future rotation. This trade is very risky as I think that Cain is an Ace in the making (despite his current bumps) and Cardenas has the makeup to be the same. While you are recieving Bruce who I feel is more of a sure thing than Cardenas due to the fact that he will play at GABP, and I cant imagine how that will swell his overall numbers, but this will have you wishing you had pitching by the time that Bruce is able to contribute on a regular basis.
I think twice about making this offer UNLESS you can acquire a young starter as well, you would be seriously jeopardizing your future otherwise.
Strikeouts are boring - besides that, they're fascist. Throw some ground balls. More democratic. ~Bull Durham
