    The Brockton and Phillips signings were way worse than him possibly doing nothing today. I have serious worries about how things look moving forward.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    In my honest opinion, I just don't see any players out there to be had, that are better than what we have, that wouldn't require us to give up what little top prospects we have left.,,, With me saying that Walt will probably shock us all i.e. the Latos and Choo deals that came out of nowhere.

    Has anybody been moved yet that would be an upgrade for the Reds?

    I don't think anyone that looks available is worth any legit prospect.

    GM leads franchise to a playoff appearance for what appears will be a third time in four years after 15 years absence.

    GM getting mocked, ridiculed and lambasted for incompetence by fans.

    Funny place, this is.

    honest question, would they DFA hannahan for a better backup 1b/3b? that's the only position I think could have an easy, helpful upgrade.

    Seattle is said to be aggressively looking to deal Michael Morse. Now there is a guy that could be acquired relatively cheaply, can play some infield in a pinch, and can beat the living snot out of lefties.

    Go get him Walt!
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    He's been hurt a good chunk of this season. I don't know if he's healthy now but I do know he tends to be hurt a lot. If he's healthy and is very cheap he would be fine. The only infield position he can play is 1B,BTW.

    With the utmost sarcastic emphasis possible on fantastic, yes indeed lol

    Jake Peavy would have pushed Cingrani into Sean Marshall's role. If you believe that Marshall isn't going to pitch this year, that's an upgrade. Probably not worth what they would have had to pay, but it would have upgraded the team.

    Again....you can squint at Brian Wilson and say it could be an upgrade. There's risk there.

    I could be convinced that Alberto Callaspo is an upgrade over Jack Hannahan.

    Lots of hate expressed on the board at the reds bench and I don't feel it's that terrible, but if you look around the edges of the roster there is certainly room for improvement. They are not going to get Barry Larkin for nothing, but there is certainly room for improvement.

    Parra has filled Marshall's role perfectly, how big of an upgrade is Peavy over Cingrani in the rotation other than a bigger name?
    "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."

    Hurt means cheap, in this case. The Reds need cheap. Michael Morse is pretty good. I am thinking he could be had for some sort of Heisey, and Sharky Rogers package.

    Pretty sure he can moonlight at 3B as well, but it is probably very ugly.

    IMO Michael Morse is better than acquiring nothing. Gotta get better against lefties.

    The Reds have to hold on and win the wild card, then win the one game play-in game before they make the playoffs.
