There is still hope that the Reds will upgrade the rotation.
"We're still having trade talks," O'Brien said. "It's been a fairly busy week."
If he is talking about free agents then the list is pretty short for starters:
If I had to guess, I would say Al Leiter, Jason Johnson, or Pedro Astacio. Those are just guesses, nothing more.

I have a platform and a message, and now I go to bed at night, sober and happy, praying I can be a good messenger." -Josh Hamilton
