    This team needs 1995-96 Barry Larkin in the worst kind of way. Great baserunner, speed, bat control, OB, willingness to go the other way: in short, everything this offense isn't.

    Re: Official Trade Deadline Thread

    I am starting to think a trade or lack there of is an edict on Ludwick's health. If Ludwick's return is within the next couple of weeks then I think Walt stands still. If Ludwick's return is still 3-4 weeks off then a move must be made.

    I would like to see DeJesus acquired. Robinson is a good defender but I don't like his bat.

    If Jocketty is relying on 35 year old Ryan Ludwick and his bum shoulder to save this offense, then the Reds have more problems beyond the field that extend into the front office.

    Just doesn't seem like there are many better options available. That's not Walt's fault.

    This is very true.. In his defense though who is willing to deal after game one of the season? Now grant it he's had up until his return to address the issue and hasn't

    Dead serious here....does anybody REALLY expect them to land a solid bat? I sure don't. In fact I'd be surprised if they don't just stand pat.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner

    Here's last year's article if you want to read ahead.

    http://cincinnati.com/blogs/reds/201...er-on-broxton/

    We looked at several deals for position players that we looked at. In the end, we liked what we had and those deals just didn’t make sense for us. … We just decided to focus on pitching.

    “We said at the beginning we were going to try to look for a leadoff hitter, a cleanup hitter, bench help or try to strengthen our pitching. The position player deals just weren’t right for us, and we felt good about adding an arm like Broxton. We’re still going to look at things in August. There’s still deals that could be made in August, so we’ll keep looking at it.

    “Obviously we want to win this year but we’re a small market club. We have to protect our future too, so we can keep winning year after year, hopefully.”

    Or we can go and post articles on the Latos, Rolen, Marshall, Chapman acquisitions and say that this guy typically isn't afraid to take on risk.
