    From What I have Heard

    Hearing that the Reds will NOT be making moves for this season. Any move that is made will be made with 2015 in mind.

    Expect to possibly see Simon, and Broxton among the two people that are dealt for prospects.

    With the hopes of signing Latos and Cueto.

That's an amazing statement."

    Even at nearly 11 minutes, this song never drags. So amazing.

    I read this on Redlegnation that talks about OP's sentiment but hardly an official source. The article suggests this year might a lost year due to injury which I have to agree with, if the Reds continue to play out of contention. It would be smart to move Simon or Broxton for a return without losing a main starting pitcher. Reds still have Cingrani and Stephenson in AAA for 2015.

    Take it for what it is worth, and to most, if not all of you, it will mean very little.

    Just stating what I have heard, from someone who would know.

    Thats all.

    You can discuss it, like most do on message boards. You can rip on me as a pointless poster, which is fine, or, as usually happens on this board you can sweep it into some 100 page thread that is only read by 10 or 12 of you, and other fans like myself by pass it due to it being all over the places.

    Like I said, from what I have heard, from someone who would have a good idea of the subject, is that the Reds will try to only make a move at this deadline which will help them for 2015. It is what it is for 2014.

    I, personally, hope that I am dead wrong.

    Yep, I think one can site logic as one's source on this.

    I don't, I hope you're right. The Reds have a few marketable pieces that could prove to be more valuable to other teams with less injury or financial concerns. IMO, anything done without 2015 in mind is short sighted and lacks merit.

    Thanks for the info

    Help them for 2015? Fire up those Stanton and Tulo threads. Just kidding. Please don't.

    to be honest it makes the most sense. not crazy about it but with votto and BP out about another month it might be reality.
    there's nothing like bowling a 300 game! 13 now and retired.
