    Re: Reds/Marlins Trade Brewing?

    Trading young starting pitching for a soon to be expensive position player would be a huge no in my book. And I think Stanton is an absolute stud. Position players just don't have the kind of effect we think they do when filling out our imaginary lineup cards. About 64 games out of 123 last season Stanton had a negative impact on offense. That is about the same for every good hitter. Stay the course and keep building with young pitching.

    Costello: That's what I want to find out. I want you to tell me the names of the fellows on the St. Louis team.

    Abbott: I'm telling you. Who's on first, What's on second, I Don't Know is on third--

    Costello: You know the fellows' names?

    Abbott: Yes.

    Costello: Well, then who's playing first?

    Abbott: Yes.

    Costello: I mean the fellow's name on first base.

    Abbott: Who.

    Costello: The fellow playin' first base.

    Abbott: Who.

    Costello: The guy on first base.

    Abbott: Who is on first.

    Costello: Well, what are you askin' me for?

    Abbott: I'm not asking you--I'm telling you. Who is on first.

    Costello: I'm asking you--who's on first?

    Abbott: That's the man's name.

    Costello: That's who's name?

    Abbott: Yes.

    ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

    Costello: When you pay off the first baseman every month, who gets the money?

    Abbott: Every dollar of it. And why not, the man's entitled to it.

    Costello: Who is?

    Abbott: Yes.

    Costello: So who gets it?

    Abbott: Why shouldn't he? Sometimes his wife comes down and collects it.

    Costello: Who's wife?

    Abbott: Yes. After all, the man earns it.

    Costello: Who does?

    Abbott: Absolutely.

    Costello: Well, all I'm trying to find out is what's the guy's name on first base?

    Abbott: Oh, no, no. What is on second base.

    Costello: I'm not asking you who's on second.

    Abbott: Who's on first!

    ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

    Costello: St. Louis has a good outfield?

    Abbott: Oh, absolutely.

    Costello: The left fielder's name?

    Abbott: Why.

    Costello: I don't know, I just thought I'd ask.

    Abbott: Well, I just thought I'd tell you.

    Costello: Then tell me who's playing left field?

    Abbott: Who's playing first.

    Costello: Stay out of the infield! The left fielder's name?

    Abbott: Why.

    Costello: Because.

    Abbott: Oh, he's center field.

    Costello: Wait a minute. You got a pitcher on this team?

    Abbott: Wouldn't this be a fine team w i t h o u t a pitcher?

    Costello: Tell me the pitcher's name.

    Abbott: Tomorrow.

    ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

    Costello: Now, when the guy at bat bunts the ball--me being a good catcher--I want to throw the guy out at first base, so I pick up the ball and throw it to who?

    Abbott: Now, that's he first thing you've said right.

    Costello: I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT!

    Abbott: Don't get excited. Take it easy.

    Costello: I throw the ball to first base, whoever it is grabs the ball, so the guy runs to second. Who picks up the ball and throws it to what. What throws it to I don't know. I don't know throws it back to tomorrow--a triple play.

    Abbott: Yeah, it could be.

    Costello: Another guy gets up and it's a long ball to center.

    Abbott: Because.

    Costello: Why? I don't know. And I don't care.

    Abbott: What was that?

    Costello: I said, I DON'T CARE!

    Abbott: Oh, that's our shortstop!

    I think it wholly involves Stanton, I doubt it happens.

    I talked to him today and he said they were trying to do it.

    And really, a lot of teams have tried. But trying and doing are worlds apart.

    I had no idea I would start a huge thread. He just posted that and I wanted to know if anyone else had heard something.

    I see where a Yahoo guy makes the case but that was a wishful thinking type article.

    Sure would be good, probably doesn't happen.

    I like Billy Hamilton, but his upside is balanced out by his enormous cellar if his power-less bat doesn't continue to hold as he continues to move up and face better pitching. There's a reason you don't find many guys in the bigs who don't hit home runs and rely on speed to reach base. For every 1 Ichiro there are 1,000 Wily Taveras or Rey Olmedos.

    You talked to who?

    (I know, I know........"first base!")

    But seriously, you said "I talked to him today...". Who did you talk to?

    If not Stanton, there are other targets on the Marlins: Polanco, Buck, Dunn.

    My thoughts is that it involves Ruggiano as the Marlins are itching to call up Yelich who will patrol CF for them. Marlins don't currently have room and Yelich is not on the 40 man roster.

    Reds deal for Ruggiano put him in CF move Choo to LF.

    Speculation on my part but some bloggers have thought if there is an odd man out for the Fish it will be Ruggiano not Stanton.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    Ah yes, the Marcus McBeth deal. We all had such high hopes for him...
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Ruggiano would be a nice help IMO. Would add depth when Ludwick comes back. I do not think they would move Choo now only to move him back when Ludwick is healthy. Ruggiano would probably be in LF and fit ok in 2 hole. Nice OBP last year but struggling this year. Wouldn't give up any pitching prospects for a 31 year old journeyman though.

    Last year a platoon of Paul and Ruggiano would have gotten you an OPS of about .850
