Like the guys on Home Plate said, you could easily make an argument for this deal if it put a team over the top or even close to it. But the Reds are nowhere near that, instead there are huge holes to fill. Maybe prospects are overvalued, if so, they frittered a few away for minimal impact.
it would be interesting to see what PECOTA thinks of Rolen and EE for 2010.
I can't imagine EdE's future facing Shields, Beckett, Garza, CC on a week-in week-out basis is going to be too bright.
No more Dave Bush, Ian Snell, Brian Moehler to pad the stats.
